Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Some employees will often prefer to use their own personal mobile devices to access company networks/systems. However, this is potentially a security loophole which places the organisation at risk from reputational damage and legal proceedings.

Firms need to have a formal policy with regard to the use of personal devices at work.

Bring Your Own Device refers to this type of policy – which defines what mobile devices (if any), employees can use to access company networks/ systems.

We consider how to structure such a policy, and what it may contain.
