  • Operating System: Windows 8 Home Edition or later
  • Processor: Intel Core i3 / AMD 2.0 Ghz or better
  • RAM: Minimum 4 GB, recommended 8GB

BYOD stands for bring your own device, and the most commonly accepted BYOD meaning is when students use their own personal devices to connect to the LMS and access what they need to do their tasks and attend classes. This includes data and information that could be potentially sensitive or confidential, so here are some tips to ensure you maximize the security!

One of the most common best practices listed in a BYOD policy is for users to have installed some kind of security software on their personal devices. This includes antivirus software, mobile device management (MDM) software, and unified endpoint management (UEM) software.

✔ Try not to leave your device unattended.
✔ Ensure someone is looking it after if you are briefly absent.
✔ Save your work on an external portable memory.
✔ Bring your device charger: AIBL will ensure to provide power points along all facilities in campus for your convenience.


Why is a BYOD policy important?
Enables students to bring your own device that typically already know how to use it and avoid complex security protocols.
What are the best practices of BYOD security?
Use strong passwords, determine the kinds of sensitive data, place mobile security tools on devices, choose time-based lockout features, and determine how to wipe sensitive information off the user’s device.

What is a BYOD example?
The devices used for BYOD could include tablets, personal computers & laptops
