In light of the proposed ban on cell phone use by drivers from the National Transportation Safety Board, organizations should revisit their wireless use policies. According to a recent press release from the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (www.temia.org), organizations should review their mobile policies to manage risk in four areas:
- Danger from use of mobile devices while operating vehicles
- Acceptable use standards to limit company liability for inappropriate actions by employees
- Data on devices from session hijacking, malware, viruses or theft of devices
- Excessive spending
ICOMM Consulting assists organizations in creating and updating mobile devices policies, balancing policy compliance monitoring with privacy concerns. Cost savings from Wireless TEM (WTEM) can pay for the assistance by optimizing service plans and eliminating wasteful spending. Organizations see a solid return through updating policy, telecom cost reduction and risk mitigation with tools to monitor policy compliance, and full enterprise reporting across all devices, accounts and employees.
