The rapid adoption of mobile devices by employees — iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones, and other devices — creates new challenges for employers. Many companies have adopted formal policies that permit employees to use their personal mobile devices to create, store, and transmit work-related data. These new policies may turn an employee’s personal device into a “dual use” device used for both personal and company data and activities. This trend is generally referred to as “Bring Your Own Device,” or BYOD.
