ENISA reports on Bring Your Own Device risks

The developing trend of people using their own computers, phones, social networks or smart devices and applications for work offers benefits, but also brings risks. That’s the message from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) in its latest report, ‘Consumerisation of IT: Top Risks and Opportunities’.

Overall, ENISA identifies three main areas of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) risk:

  • Risks related to costs;
  • Risks related to legal and regulatory issues;
  • Risks affecting data (confidentiality, integrity, availability and privacy).

The report provides an assessment of various risks in each of the above areas; looks at the various opportunites that BYOD brings; and identifies dependencies between BYOD risks and opportunites.

The full report is available here.
