the place of useful learningThe University of Strathclyde is a charitable body, registered in Scotland, number SC015263 BRING YOUR OWNDEVICE POLICY Bring Your Own Device Policy1 IntroductionThe University of Strathclyde recognises the benefits that can be achieved byallowing staff to use their own electronic devices when working, whether that is athome, on campus or while travelling. Such devices include laptops, smart phonesand tablets, and the practice is commonly known as ‘bring your own device’ orBYOD. It is committed to supporting staff in this practice and ensuring that as fewtechnical restrictions as reasonably possible are imposed on accessingUniversity provided services on BYOD.The use of such devices to create and process University information and datacreates issues that need to be addressed, particularly in the area of informationsecurity.The University must ensure that it remains in control of the data for which it isresponsible, regardless of the ownership of the device used to carry out theprocessing. It must also protect its intellectual property as well as empowering staffto ensure that they protect their own personal information.2 Information Security PoliciesAll relevant University policies still apply to staff using BYOD. Staff should note, inparticular, the University’s Information Security related policies. Several of these aredirectly relevant to staff adopting BYOD. University Policy on the Use of Computing Facilities and Resources Protection of Information Held on Mobile Devices and Encryption Policy Anti-Virus Policy Data Protection Policy3 The Responsibilities of Staff MembersIndividuals who make use of BYOD must take responsibility for their own device andhow they use it. They must: Familiarise themselves with their device and its security features so that theycan ensure the safety of University information (as well as their owninformation) Invoke the relevant security features Maintain the device themselves ensuring it is regularly patched and upgraded Ensure that the device is not used for any purpose that would be at odds withthe University Policy on the Use of Computing Facilities and ResourcesWhile University IT staff will always endeavour to assist colleagues whereverpossible, the University cannot take responsibility for supporting devices it does notprovide.Staff using BYOD must take all reasonable steps to: Prevent theft and loss of data Keep information confidential where appropriate Maintain the integrity of data and information, including that on campus Take responsibility for any software they download onto their deviceStaff using BYOD must: Set up passwords, passcodes, passkeys or biometric equivalents. Thesemust be of sufficient length and complexity for the particular type of device Set up remote wipe facilities if available and implement a remote wipe if theylose the device Encrypt documents or devices as necessary (see Protection of InformationHeld on Mobile Devices and Encryption Policy ) Not hold any information that is sensitive, personal, confidential or ofcommercial value on personally owned devices. Instead they should use theirdevice to make use of the many services that the University offers allowingaccess to information on University services securely over the internet. Moreinformation on determining if information is ‘confidential’ is available on thewebsite Where it is essential that information belonging to the University is held on apersonal device it should be deleted as soon as possible once it is no longerrequired. This includes information contained within emails Ensure that relevant information is copied back onto University systems andmanage any potential data integrity issues with existing information Report the loss of any device containing University data (including email) tothe IT Help desk Be aware of any Data Protection issues and ensure personal data is handledappropriately. Report any security breach immediately to IT Helpdesk in accordance with theInformation Security Policy (the Information Governance Unit will be informedwhere personal data is involved). Ensure that no University information is left on any personal deviceindefinitely. Particular care must be taken if a device is disposedof/sold/transferred to a third party4 Monitoring and AccessThe University will not routinely monitor personal devices. However it does reservethe right to: Prevent access to a particular device from either the wired or wirelessnetworks or both Prevent access to a particular system Take all necessary and appropriate steps to retrieve information owned by theUniversity5 Data Protection and BYODThe University must process ‘personal data’ i.e. data about identifiable livingindividuals in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Sensitive personal datais information that relates to race/ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs,trade union membership, health (mental or physical) or details of criminal offences.This category of information should be handled with a higher degree of protection atall times.The University, in line with guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office onBYOD recognises that there are inherent risks in using personal devices to holdpersonal data. Therefore, staff must follow the guidance in this document whenconsidering using BYOD to process personal data.A breach of the Data Protection Act can lead to the University being fined up to£500,000. Any member of staff found to have deliberately breached the Act may besubject to disciplinary measures, having access to the University’s facilities beingwithdrawn, or even a criminal prosecution.For more information see the University’s Data Protection webpages.6 Information to Help StaffThe University has a policy of ensuring remote access to its systems and serviceswherever possible – Remote Access to University provided Information Systems andServices.The University provides information for staff making use of remote access services:http://www.strath.ac.uk/ithelpdesk/helptopics/remoteaccess/On campus BYOD will normally be limited to the WiFi Network using eduroam.Additional information is provided to help with encryption:http://www.strath.ac.uk/it/itsecurity/encryption/
Mini CasePage 326A Job at East Coast YachtsYou recently graduated from college and your job search led you to East Coast Yachts. Because you felt the company’s business was seaworthy, you accepted a job offer.The first day on the job, while you are finishing your employment paperwork, Dan Ervin, who works in Finance, stops by to inform you about the company’s 401(k) plan.A 401(k) plan is a retirement plan offered by many companies. Such plans are tax-deferred savings vehicles, meaning thatany deposits you make into the plan are deducted from your current pretax income,so no current taxes are paid on the money. For example, assume your salary will be $50,000 per year.If you contribute $3,000 to the 401(k) plan, you will pay taxes on only $47,000 in income.There are also no taxes paid on any capital gains or income while you are invested in the plan,but you do pay taxes when you withdraw money at retirement. As is fairly common,the company also has a 5 percent match. This means that the company will match yourcontribution up to 5 percent of your salary, but you must contribute the amount that you want matched, up to the maximum. The 401(k) plan has several options for investments, most of which are mutual funds. A mutual fund is a portfolio of assets.When you purchase shares in a mutual fund, you are actually purchasing partial ownership of the fund’s assets.The return of the fund is the weighted average of the return of the assets owned by the fund, minus any expenses.The largest expense is typically the management fee, paid to the fund manager. The management fee is compensation for the manager,who makes all of the investment decisions for the fund. East Coast Yachts uses Bledsoe Financial Services as its 401(k) plan administrator. Here are the investment options offered for employees: Company Stock One option in the 401(k) plan is stock in East Coast Yachts. The company is currently privately held. However, when you interviewed with the owner,Larissa Warren, she informed you the company was expected to go public in the next three to four years.Until then, a company stock price is set each year by the board of directors. Bledsoe S&P 500 Index Fund This mutual fund tracks the S&P 500. Stocks in the fund are weighted exactly the same as the S&P 500.This means the fund return is approximately the return on the S&P 500, minus expenses.Because an index fund purchases assets based on the composition of the index it is following,the fund manager is not required to research stocks and make investment decisions. The result is that the fund expenses are usually low.The Bledsoe S&P 500 Index Fund charges expenses of .15 percent of assets per year. Bledsoe Small-Cap Fund This fund primarily invests in small-capitalization stocks. As such, the returns of the fund are more volatile.The fund also can invest 10 percent of its assets in companies based outside the United States. This fund charges 1.70 percent in expenses. Bledsoe Large-Company Stock Fund This fund invests primarily in large-capitalization stocks of companies based in the United States.The fund is managed by Evan Bledsoe and has outperformed the market in six of the last eight years. The fund charges 1.50 percent in expenses. Bledsoe Bond Fund This fund invests in long-term corporate bonds issued by U.S.-domiciled companies. The fund is restricted to investmentsin bonds with an investment-grade credit rating. This fund charges 1.40 percent in expenses. Bledsoe Money Market Fund This fund invests in short-term, high-credit quality debt instruments, which include Treasury bills.As such, the return on the money market fund is only slightly higher than the return on Treasury bills. Because of the credit quality and short-term nature of the investments,there is only a very slight risk of negative return. The fund charges .60 percent in expenses. What advantages do the mutual funds offer compared to the company stock?Assume that you invest 5 percent of your salary and receive the full 5 percent match from East Coast Yachts.What EAR do you earn from the match? What conclusions do you draw about matching plans?Assume you decide you should invest at least part of your money in large-capitalization stocks of companies based in the United States.What are the advantages and disadvantages of choosing the Bledsoe Large-Company Stock Fund compared to the Bledsoe S&P 500 Index Fund?The returns on the Bledsoe Small-Cap Fund are the most volatile of all the mutual funds offered in the 401(k) plan.Why would you ever want to invest in this fund? When you examine the expenses of the mutual funds, you will notice that this fund also has the highest expenses.Does this affect your decision to invest in this fund?A measure of risk-adjusted performance that is often used is the Sharpe ratio. The Sharpe ratio is calculated as the risk premium of an asset divided by its standard deviation.The standard deviations and returns of the funds over the past 10 years are listed here. Calculate the Sharpe ratio for each of these funds.Assume that the expected return and standard deviation of the company stock will be 16 percent and 58 percent, respectively.Calculate the Sharpe ratio for the company stock.How appropriate is the Sharpe ratio for these assets? When would you use the Sharpe ratio? Assume a 3.2 percent risk-free rate. 10-Year Annual Return Standard Deviation Bledsoe S&P 500 Index Fund 11.04% 18.45%Bledsoe Small-Cap Fund 16.14% 29.18%Bledsoe Large-Company Stock Fund 12.15% 24.43%Bledsoe Bond Fund 6.93% 9.96%What portfolio allocation would you choose? Why? Explain your thinking carefully.

Flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) is the removal process of sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ) from flue gas emissions, often chemically. Sulfur dioxide in gases is produced by the combustion of fossil fuels and many industrial processes such as gasoline refining as well as cement, paper, glass, steel, iron and copper production. Sulfur dioxide emissions are a primary contributor to acid rain and have been regulated by every industrialized nation in the world.FGD processes vary depending on the amount of SO 2 involved, the solution being used to absorb the SO 2 , and the particular equipment used in the absorption tower.Methods of removing sulfur dioxide from boiler and furnace exhaust gases have been studied for over 150 years. Early ideas for flue gas desulfurization were established in England around 1850.With the construction of large-scale power plants in England in the 1920s, the problems associated with large volumes of SO 2 from a single site began to concern the public. The SO 2 emissions problem did not receive much attention until 1929, when the House of Lords upheld the claim of a landowner against the Barton Electricity Works of the Manchester Corporation for damages to his land resulting from SO 2 emissions. Shortly thereafter, a press campaign was launched against the erection of power plants within the confines of London. This outcry led to the imposition of SO 2 controls on all such power plants.The first major FGD unit at a utility was installed in 1931 at Battersea Power Station , owned by London Power Company . In 1935, an FGD system similar to that installed at Battersea went into service at Swansea Power Station. The third major FGD system was installed in 1938 at Fulham Power Station . These three early large-scale FGD installations were abandoned during World War II . Large-scale FGD units did not reappear at utilities until the 1970s, where most of the installations occurred in the United States and Japan .As of June 1973, there were 42 FGD units in operation, 36 in Japan and 6 in the United States, ranging in capacity from 5 MW to 250 MW. As of around 1999 and 2000, FGD units were being used in 27 countries, and there were 678 FGD units operating at a total power plant capacity of about 229 gigawatts . About 45% of the FGD capacity was in the US, 24% in Germany , 11% in Japan, and 20% in various other countries. Approximately 79% of the units, representing about 199 gigawatts of capacity, were using lime or limestone wet scrubbing. About 18% (or 25 gigawatts) utilized spray-dry scrubbers or sorbent injection systems
