BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Policies Affect Everyone


Even if employers provide cell devices/tablets to employees, many employees now insist on using their own iPhones, Droids, Blackberries, and tablets. However many privacy and data ownership legal issues are unresolved. At InnoTech on May 17, 2012 I had the honor to serve on a panel entitled “BYOD – Consumerization of IT & Policy Management” with these IT leaders:

Brian Bonner, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Texas Instruments Incorporated
Richard Dorough, Chief Information Security Officer, Textron Information Services, Textron, Inc.
Gerry Mecca, Vice President of IT – Packaged Beverages, Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS)
Jake Sagehorn, Managing Director, SCA, Inc. (Moderator)

Many thanks to Jake Sagehorn for moderating the Panel’s discussion since it was clear that the audience of IT professionals wanted to learn more about our topics:

  • Eligibility & Reimbursement Guidelines
  • Enterprise Applications
  • Security Guidelines
  • ROI: The Cost Justification, and
  • Legal Issues

Every business is impacted by BYOD, however the complex legal and business issues are not crystal clear.  How does BYOD impact you and your business?

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
