Nearly half of adults use their own smartphone, laptop or tablet for work, while less than 3 in 10 who do so are provided with guidance by their employer, according to a survey for the Information Commissioners Office. ICO has created a guide explaining some of the risks organisations must consider when allowing personal devices to be used to process work-related personal information.
Employment relations body ACAS has recently published some very brief guidance for employers on the use of personal devices in the workplace, often referred to as a ‘bring your own device’ policy or BYOD. http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=3982.
