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?
