By connecting via the internet to potentially classified or sensitive applications or data, there are threats to the safety and security of that information.
Security issues may include:
*Lack of physical security - devices can be stolen, drives can be copied, or people can shoulder surf.
*Unsecured Networks - connecting on networks that are unsecured such as cafe, hotel and other open public networks are easy targets for exploitation.
*Providing Internal Access Externally - servers will be facing the internet therefore increasing the potential risk and vulnerability of being compromised.
*Out of Date Software - When using personal devices system updates and patches cannot be guaranteed.
