Submission + - The BYOD Threat - the internal threat (networkcomputing.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: The acronym "BYOD" stands for "Bring Your Own Device" — a common practice in many corporate setting whereby employees are allowed to 'bring your own device' to work and IT will allow it to access the corporate network.

BYOD can also be known as Bring Your Own Disaster

“Consumer devices were never intended to be highly secure,” says Steve Durbin, global vice president of the Information Security Forum (ISF)

“Unless you’ve thought through your BYOD strategy, unless you’ve put in place some real good governance around it and you get your users to sign up to acceptable use policies, there’s very little you can do to enforce some of these things,” he adds
