In BYOD We Trust!
Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs typically focus on increasing productivity and employee satisfaction while ensuring data security. What should not be overlooked, and it may be the most important factor in whether these programs are successful, is the level of trust created and sustained between the organization and its employees.
In the early days of mobility, organizations maintained complete control over devices and typically reserved the right to wipe all data from a phone if it was lost or stolen. This may have worked well for the limited numbers using such phones (and usually carrying two devices), but it’s a tough sell for BYOD users, whose devices store both personal and corporate information. These users must trust their personal data won’t be accessed or deleted by the organization; if they don’t, the BYOD program will fail.
