The widening trust gap
BYOD was supposed to bring people together. Employees could use technology of their choosing, and IT could shake the naysayer moniker.
Then the relationship got a little dicey when IT asked employees to sign a draconian BYOD end-user policy that makes short shrift of an employee's expectation of privacy.
Only three out of 10 employees completely trust their employee to keep personal information private, according to a MobileIron-commissioned survey of 3,000 workers. The flip side is that the rest aren't so sure. And a widening trust gap can quickly escalate from head-shaking to finger-pointing to employee lawsuits claiming privacy rights violations.
