BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) describes the trend of companies allowing their employees to use their own personal devices to access their company’s network, create and/or store business information. Companies like the cost benefits and flexibility; employees like working using their tools of choice. The impact of BYOD on compliance, corporate risk and litigation is, however, a top concern. In-house counsel are now grappling with securing company information, as well as the challenges that BYOD brings in the event of litigation or regulatory action.
