This week we’re working on research paper / assignment 2, BYOD. 

From the syllabus and course content section: BYOD is becoming more commonplace in today’s enterprise organizations.  Where it was once not even considered, today many organizations are allowing their staff to bring their own tablets and laptops, or allow them to connect to their network via VPN in order to enjoy the inherent benefits.  You are Chief Security Officer for UMESCo, a mid-sized financial consulting company.  Your CEO, Mr. Smith, has decreed that the beginning of the next fiscal year will see the launch of a BYOD policy within your organization, allowing all staff to use their personal laptops, tablets and smartphones both in the office and remotely from home via a VPN service.  Mr. Smith has asked you to prepare a document for him detailing the security concerns and any policies you’d implement with this new BYOD policy looming in the near future.  Make sure to be as comprehensive as possible in your security concerns and with any policies you’d want to see established to allow users to bring their own devices in from home.  Make sure to include an executive summary at the end of the document instead of a conclusion, as it is business correspondence. 

Remember the paper should not exceed 3000 words, be double-spaced, excluding the title page and works cited section.  All references must be from authentic, established and reliable sources (sites like Wikipedia will not be accepted).  This assignment must contain a minimum of 5 resources.  Submitted documents must be in MS Word format (.doc or .docx).  Finally, make sure to adhere to the APA format guidelines.
