Bring Your Own Device
This Policy on Bringing Employees’ Own Devices to Work (BYOD) defines what the Company considers to be acceptable in respect of BYOD. Increasingly, employees are using their own devices to access and store corporate information, as well as their own personal information. This is known as ‘bring your own device’ or BYOD. Companies should ensure that they have a strong BYOD policy in order to protect them against the risks that come with employees using personal smartphones, laptops and tablets to process work-related information. With the introduction of the GDPR, companies must show that they have taken appropriate measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful access if the device is, for example, lost or stolen.
