Securing Photos on Mobile phones

Hi All,

We have users that visit a lot of external locations and take photos of sensitive data, this is against the policy but makes their lives a million times easier so hard to enforce
Instead I would like to find a solution that ensures the photos are properly encrypted and not uploaded to the cloud and ideally a corporate solution

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Re: Securing Photos on Mobile phones

I'm not aware of any programs that would encrypt photos or have a photo app in a secure container that would prevent data leakage to other phone apps. I'd look into different MDM solutions and see if that's a possibility with a combination of app whitelisting. I'm not sure I'd risk it depending on how sensitive the data is.

So, basically, you are asking us to help you (and your employees) to keep breaking
the law, but make it harder for you/them to be caught?

You *do* know that ISC2 has a code of ethics, right?

I mean, it did sound really sketchy but the language barrier could be in play here. It could be sensitive to the company he works for and not necessarily national security sensitive. We'll have to have him clarify the situation but good catch.
