Apps, work & security

Post by Salomé P. on Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:52 am

Are apps that we're using for work really secure?  Suspect
It seems like a good and actual subject, as we had a speaker last monday who talked about this.

Here is the source: Link, an article from BBC.

Main idea of it is that when we're working in a firm, the IT department is actually mostly unarmed and have no idea of what apps we are using and if they are particulary adapt to the "compagny life", if the informations that we've shared are safe. Cause if the firm don't provide the users with the good tools that they are expecting to do the job, they'll have to find them by themselves and maybe put in danger project files and other important doc as their own personal identity datas, opening data breachs. Cause as using the new app trend Pokemon go our what's app on our phone, same using for work, the worry is that these apps may not have specific robust security protocols in place because many were developed primarily with consumers in mind. And the data itself may be in danger, as stored in foreign countries governed with less categorical data protection laws.
So any danger using Pokemon Go, Google Drive or Pinterest (@Aurélie;) at work? clown

Well after monday I'm pretty sure that yes, it's dangerous to use personnal apps or files on workplace. But if I understood well : if it's not on the same device it's good :-) no problem !
If pokemon go is entertainment (so nope for work) and google drive is not secure cause google knows everything (I know that from Olivier and Jamel so that's for sure), pinterest can definitly be used for work ! especially when you have to create or to find new trends : so great for designers and marketers !

If your employer is afraid about data stuffs then I could give you another device : one for "serious things" and one for pinterest ;-)

(to be honest i don't really know what I'm talking about, i just answer cause Salomé told me to... please don't bully me...)

I think you just have to use the MG2uS software to keep safe with your apps Salomé ! tongue

This is a problem which is growing in our society especially with the democratisation of automation. Security vulnerabilities with this technology exposes us and someone can control our home. So we have to be careful with our sensitive data, especially with the work's one. But I don't want to become paranoid and pay attention to everything I make, encrypt messages...
Morethan, I don't have sensitive data on my computer so I'm not worried about security. affraid
