BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device[1]

The recent trend of employees bringing personally-owned devices to their place of work, and using those devices to access privileged company resources such as email, file servers and databases as well as their personal application and data.

About 90% of employees already using their own technology (in at least a limited capacity) at work. In most cases, businesses simply can't block the trend. Left unmanaged, this practice has resulted in data breaches. One of the biggest issues with managing the BYOD dilemma is to track and control access to corporate and private networks. However, security is not the only issue that comes with BYOD. Additionally, troubleshooting could be a major problem in an environment where users are bringing a multitude of different technologies.

Additionally, it is important to consider damage liability issues when considering BYOD. If an employee brings their personal device to work, and it is physically damaged through no fault of their own, should the organization reimburse the employee for the full price of the device?
