BYOD: Businesses must be clear on data privacy

Businesses looking to implement a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program must be aware that the parameters of what they can and cannot do with a mobile device management (MDM) platform are governed by local data privacy legislation, which inconveniently varies from market to market.

No business should look to deploy a BYOD policy until they understand the implications of monitoring an employee-owned device, the requirement to obtain consent from the employee, and the risk it poses if this consent is not achieved either at the point of MDM solution deployment or at the point of a data loss event.
