Since May 25, 2018, the implementation of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has changed the way personal data is collected, organized, managed and protected by all organizations. Using smartphones, employees are able to access their company’s customer or prospect database. Data that is tightly regulated by the GDPR. Compliance with the new European regulation is a substantive work on both PCs and smartphones, since the latter, just like computers, are more and more connected to company servers. While the GDPR brings new rights and protections for consumers, it also affects mobile data security. Mobile risk management must become a priority for IT.
And yet, what’s more difficult to secure than a device that can be connected to multiple networks, with many applications both personal and professional, and where communications (voice, SMS, email, instant messaging) can be intercepted?

The GDPR makes businesses accountable: Protecting data and their usage must be real and effective. In case of audit or data leak, it will be necessary to prove that everything has been done to protect and secure personal data stored on company smartphones. This usually requires a robust solution well beyond the features of a simple MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution.
The GDPR mandates impact analysis for data protection. That is, each organization must take the time to map all information flows and data stored on company servers and devices, including mobile devices. Who has access to what data? For what purpose? What are the fences and safeguards in place? Who manages access rights?

So many questions that must be anticipated, with a “privacy-by-design” approach that makes security an absolute obligation when creating a digital project.
Risk management must therefore drive organizations to secure business phones with the highest standards.
A few examples:
This effort goes beyond IT, and should involve HR (education and internal policies), Legal (legal advice and legal risk management), Communications (internal communications) and the executive management (to drive activities and place security front and center).

Because it requires new, stricter and more protective standards, the GDPR should be seen as a chance for organizations to turn an obligation into an opportunity. Because the fundamental issue is not so much about expending efforts to comply with the GDPR and secure mobile data, but to measure time and money saved compared to the very real consequences of an attack on one or several smartphones in your fleet.
