Why Read This
Consumerization of IT helps drive better employee engagement and innovation because it gives people in your firm the freedom to choose the tools that work best for them and find better productivity. Sadly, we live in a world rife with zero-sum games of litigation where suffocating regulations are the norm, and failure to comply with their directives can draw millions of dollars in fines and lawsuits. Technology diversity multiplies the challenge of maintaining compliance — it's no wonder so many IT shops take a one-size-fits-all approach to workforce computing and forbid bring-your-own-device (BYOD). The correct solution is a strategy that brilliantly achieves the conflicting goals of embracing BYOD and consumerization while slashing the risks and costs at the same time. This report focuses on what the biggest legal and compliance implications of BYOD are based on our research with lawyers and auditors who specialize in technology law and compliance, and makes actionable recommendations for strategy, technology, and policy.
