re: 6 Risks Your BYOD Policy Must Address
Well folks. There you have it.

If any business is still up for having a BYOD policy after understanding the legal risks, then they are just plain crazy. Same for the employee who will fork over a good bit of their personal life as part of the, ahem, bargain.

I find it hard to believe that BYOD is more cost effective than an employer provided device when you look at the the total cost of ownership (TCO).

BYOD (short of insuring us IT types a good long career) is ridiculous on many fronts... legal, technical, security, privacy... ad nauseum.

My solution to this BYOD problem - tell my employer if they need to be to have a smart phone or a tablet, or a laptop, they can issue me a smart phone, a tablet, or a laptop. I don't like to mix business with personal, so the thought of using my personal phone/computers for work is not something I want to do.

"The personal devices they use at work could be examined not only by their employer but by the other party in the lawsuit."

This is why you WIPE all evidence from your phone after every call or every app used. No one spies on my private phone, ipad, or tablet. Its also helpful to have multiple fake name accounts on ALL social media. Learn to beat the busybody nosy types at their own game.
