Mobile Device Strategy: A management framework for securing company information assets on mobile devices
University of Skövde, School of Informatics. University of Skövde, The Informatics Research Centre. Actea Consulting AB. (Information Systems)
2016 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The problem addressed by this research is a demand for increased flexibility in access to organisational information, driven by the increasing popularity of mobile devices. Employees increasingly bring private devices to work (Bring Your Own Device, BYOD) or use work devices for private purposes (Choose Your Own Device, CYOD). This puts managers in a difficult position, since they want the benefits of mobility, without exposing organisational data to further risk. The research focuses on management (particularly information security management) issues in the design and implementation of strategies for mobile devices.  There are two objectives. The first is to identify existing information security management strategies for mobile and dual-use devices. The second is to develop a framework for analysing, evaluating and implementing a mobile device strategy.

The overall research strategy is inspired by Design Science; where the mission is to develop an artefact, in this case a framework, which will help to solve a practical problem. Methods include literature review, theoretical development, and the collection and analysis of qualitative data through interviews with executives. The main result of this work is the framework, which deals with the complete process, including analysis, design and implementation of a mobile device management strategy. It helps researchers to understand necessary steps in analysing phenomenon like BYOD and gives practitioners guidance in which analyses to conduct when working on strategies for mobile devices. The framework was developed primarily through theoretical work (with inspiration from the mobile security and strategic management literature, and the ISO/IEC 27000 standard), and evaluated and refined through the empirical studies. The results include twelve management issues, a research agenda, argumentation for CYOD and, guidance for researchers and practitioners.

Abstract [en]

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is an emerging research area focusing on the organisational adoption of (primarily mobile) devices used for both private and work purposes. There are many information security related problems concerning the use of BYOD and it should therefore be considered an issue of strategic importance for senior managers. This paper presents a systematic literature analysis using a BYOD strategic management framework to assess developing research trends. The analysis reveals early work in the analysis and design aspects of BYOD strategies, but a lack of research in operationalizing (planning, implementation and evaluating) strategy – the action phase. The resulting research agenda identifies twelve management issues for further research and four overall research directions that may stimulate future research.

Abstract [en]

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) (where employees use their private devices for work) causes problems for organisations since their management systems are seldom designed for this purpose. If BYOD is not adequately regulated, many security and privacy issues may result. This paper proposes an analysis-design-action framework for designing a suitable security management strategy by combining Johnson and Scholes’ strategic management model with the ISO/IEC 27000-series.

Abstract [en]

During the last years mobile devices have become very popular to use both for work and pleasure. Different strategies have evolved to increase productivity and to satisfy the employees. In this paper, we look at the two most popular strategies and look at the strengths and weaknesses of those. This is done by a systematic literature review and semi-structured interviews with CIO’s or equivalent roles. We conclude that BYOD and CYOD comes with similar strengths, but CYOD brings a little fewer security risks.

Abstract [en]

Since smartphones entered the market the need for them has exploded, today 85 % believe that their mobile is a central part of their life. Despite the major focus on mobile devices and increased budgets, there are still many organisations missing a strategy for mobile devices. This article investigates the most important steps to take when implementing a mobile device strategy by conducting an empirical study with interviews with CIO or equivalent roles in 13 organisations with 50 to 15 000 employees. The result is an improved framework for mobile device implementation.
