This report is an ENISA deliverable in the area of “Identifying & Responding to the Evolving Threat Environment”. It delivers the results of a risk and opportunity assessment in the area of “Consumerization of IT” (COIT), that is, the recent trend where user-owned consumer oriented hard- and software spreads in business environments (see also definition in section Terminology below). COIT is considered as a term embracing the recent trend known as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD).
Further to the risk and opportunity assessment, this report presents the criteria and guidelines that were used for identification of COIT as an emerging area. The presented criteria and guidelines will be applied in the identification phase of future areas for the assessment of emerging risks and opportunities.
This report has been produced by ENISA using input and comments from a group of experts from industry and academia and public organisations. The experts have been selected according to their engagement in the area of interest (e.g. security in emerging technologies, security in BYOD and COIT). It should be noted that group members participate as individuals. Therefore, their contribution should not be taken as representing the views of any company or other organisation.
