BYOD might be a hipster honeypot but it's rarely worth the extra hassle

Also think about the new data slurping opportunity when the same device is used - your whole life in a single device - a lot of more data correlated easily to the same person! It's much harder to profile people if they stubbornly use separated devices.

Plus, your employees are chained to you wherever they go. Another SillyCon Valley idea is you have to work long hours for free... what's better than installing the work software on their personal device? No excuses such "I left the laptop at the office", or "I can't access the file"....

I'm not someone who is not ready to work long hours when there is an effective need - just, like CEOs, I like to be paid for my hard work...
