consumerization policy

Contributor(s): Ivy Wigmore

A consumerization policy is a documented set of practices for managing the use of consumer devices and technologies within a given organization.  A consumerization policy defines acceptable use.

A consumerization policy should specify:

  • What devices will be permitted and list any restrictions associated with their use.
  • The extent to which administrators will be able to manage devices and monitor their use while on the corporate network.
  • What – if any – funding for devices will be provided by the organization.
  • The extent of support for consumer devices.
  • Basic security awareness fundamentals.
