BYOD Policy Update and Clarification of Data Storage
Recent upgrades in the operating system of some mobile phones have enabled a feature called “Trusted Device Manager.” This feature is inherently insecure for official campus business. As a result the following has been added to the BYOD Policy:
“Trusted Device Manager allows you to keep your phone unlocked when you are connected to a secure location for example the Clayton State University wi-fi. However, it is the recommendation of Clayton State University Information Technology Security that Trusted Device Manager not be used on Clayton State owned or Bring Your Own Device equipment.
Because your phone would be unlocked the entire time it is within Clayton State wi-fi range it would not be in compliance with Acceptable Use policies which require devices to time out and/or be locked while not in use or left unattended.”
Also, just to clarify the earlier memo sent out by VP Corlis Cummings and I on Data Storage – Computer Security Policy.
We did not intend to say that OneDrive could not be used for campus business. The intent was to say that in the end, “official” university data should not be stored on OneDrive (or even your local C: drive) but on a campus server, normally your department’s folder on the Z: drive. This is so that the campus will have access to the document(s) throughout the entire records management cycle.
Simply put, working documents of “official” university documents can be saved on the C: drive or OneDrive, but the final version must be saved on Z: drive.
I hope this helps. If you have questions on either of these topics, feel free to contact me.
