So you want to introduce a BYOD plan. Where do you start?


Whose device is it anyway?

If the company can dictate what websites I can and can not view, how I can and can not store data and when the device is or is not to be remotely wiped, this is not my device anymore, it is a company device that I happen to use. If BYOD means the company decides I ought to have a mobile device, gives me a budget to go out and chose the one I want, fine. If it is a phone or tablet that I have paid for with my own money, if they think I will fill it up with work related data and essentially hand over the keys to them, they can f*** right off.
