    How many of you do not have a BYOD Policy at work? I work for a company that allows any employee to bring their own device and connect it up to the network to receive email....etc. no rules or anything.

    We can hook up our exchange email account and essentially there are no "rules", but we are bound by our confidentiality policies. Leaving confidential papers lying around would be no different than carelessly allowing someone access to my phone.
    We do not have access to work wireless.

    So what about devices that have rogue apps that read emails...etc. How would you know if an employee had an insecure device and the risk that creates for the employer? Just seems like without a BYOD Policy an organization has some unnecessary risk.

    I'm on the user side, not IT/policy. But I don't disagree with you.

    Go to cio website and pull down to byod section, it all got talked about. Including the difficulty to delete mixed content of business vs personal, upon employment termination on those "personal device". Of course the security aspect as well. University environment appear to be the best model for byod. However, a bit of scary if use it in high security environment.

    I work for a public school and for the most part, you can BYOD with little in terms of what device you can use.

    That being said- if something happens where information needs to be gathered by police or attorneys for litigation - they claim they can take your device and even your home computer if you've ever accessed work files or emails from it to search it. I have no idea if this is true or not because it's never happened but who knows.

    I don't access the crap from anything outside of my cell phone. It is primarily for administrators and guidance counselors since they deal with confidential stuff about kids and custody battles. I don't really access anything confidential like that.

    I'm in public education, too. Pretty much everyone connects with their own devices. As investigations go, though, I've only see school owned properties searched. As far as I know, staff don't have to worry about their personal devices being searched unless law enforcement asks for it. Students... that's another story.
