  13. 13. Mobility - OPPORTUNITY 1 Risk Assessment/Opportunity What can you do that protects your customer and that they are comfortable with vs. what is good for their employee? 3 Key Focus Areas: 1. Information protection: Determine information that is and is not deemed “cleared” for consumption on mobile devices either due to its sensitivity or due to the compliance burdens associated with handling it. 2. User sensitivity: Creating a profile of at-risk users and the security required for their access to critical information. 3. System risk: Take advantage of features such as on-device encryption, the use of VPNs and multi-factor authentication provides a line of safety between users, their devices and the back-end. Tiered information access. Source:
  14. 14. Mobility - OPPORTUNITY 2 Create a Mobility Policy/DeployQuestions to consider:  How are you going to protect the data?  How are employees going to log in?  What devices are you going to allow on the network?  What employee security mandates are you going to impose?  Are you going to allow Personal Identifiable Information (PII) or Protected Health Information (PHI) on the devices?  What are data compliance/privacy requirements for your customers industry? (ie. Privacy Act, PIPA (AB), HIPAA, GLBA, PCI, SOC, etc.) Source:
