It would be fair to assume that anyone working in the data security industry would be at least familiar with the concept of ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) by now. The prominent trend for employees to use their own laptops, smartphones and other devices to handle sensitive company information has been repeatedly highlighted as a significant threat to the security of corporate data over the last 18 months or so.However, as the contemporary global workforce becomes increasingly mobile, employees are required to communicate and collaborate with a growing number of colleagues, customers and stakeholders.
