BYOD Security Challenges in Education

The influx of personal smartphones and tablets on campus, and the resulting data deluge, imposes a new set of security challenges. This white paper, intended for IT and network security specialists in schools and higher education, explains the security precautions needed on bring-your-own-device (BYOD) campuses:

  • Protecting the network from malware and intrusion
  • Controlling access to private information such as grades, tests, or payroll records
  • Preventing illegal music and video sharing
  • In K-12, complying with regulations such as the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
  • Accomplishing all of this without adding to the IT team's workload
