Re: BYOD Policies and theft
Yes, companies that don't have BYOD policies at this point are behind the times.

Re: BYOD Policies and theft
Any company that thinks that their employees aren't using personal devices for work at this point is pretty delusional. This is simply the new reality.

Re: BYOD Policies and theft
Just as (if not more) concerning is the 21% who use their own devices in spite of company policy. Seems that BYOD is here to stay, and firms should address the trend in order to best protect themselves from attacks.

Re: BYOD Policies and theft
Interesting that the survey referenced indicates that 15 percent of employees are using their personal devices for work without IT's knowledge. This is a hige security risk, and illustrates why it's important for firms to have well-thought out BYOD policies in place.

BYOD Policies and theft
Good points in this article. The primary concerns I see in BYOD are the obvious ones which have resulted in eventual security breaches. The first is malware as personal devices are much more prone to infection and targeting, especially when used in open internet locations. Android phones accounted for almost all phone malware last year. The next is theft as personal devices are constantly mobile.
