A recent survey revealed that almost half of UK employees use their personal devices (laptops, smartphones and tablet computers) for business use. Employees personal devices are often more powerful and easier to use than what the company assigns them and they expect the freedom to use their device for work purposes. Rather than fight the inevitable most companies are allowing their employees to use their devices, however many companies are doing so without providing the necessary guidance on how these devices should be appropriately used in this capacity. This should be of great concern as the information being accessed on these personal devices, if not done in the correct manner, is a potential security risk.
