Smart devices, mobile phones and tablets are becoming the control hub for the myriad of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) – as are bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in many organizations today. But this is creating unique and heightened security risks for IT professionals, such as higher exposure to data breaches, malware and compliance violations. BYOD is no longer an industry trend; it’s a fact of life for enterprise-wide operations and the IT organizations that must support them.
In the modern workspace occupancy changes on a daily, if not hourly, basis. Building management – including higher levels of security, safety, and resource optimization – presents a unique set of challenges amidst an expanding threat landscape. It’s important for security, facility and IT professionals to collaborate and implement innovative platforms and technology that deliver transparency and actionable insights for a deeper understanding of occupancy and usage to create a safer, more efficient and compliant workplace.
