In partnership with TEMIA, Valicom releases ‘Understanding How Cochran v. Schwan’s Home Services Impacts BYOD‘. The white paper discusses rulings from the State of California, defining how an employer reimburses employees for required uses of personal devices.The decision has attracted controversy and created anxiety regarding its direct bearing on and implications for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies.
At first TEM programs only focused on telecommunications lines and the bills from carriers. As the telecommunications world has expanded so has the discipline. A number of other practices now fall under the umbrella of TEM.
Firms are adding security measures to manage mobile at an unprecedented pace, but that may not be enough. Personal mobile devices are still considered that to their owners – “personal”. “My stuff, not your stuff.” So security policies designed to protect the company may be balked at by users, and users’ own sloppy personal habits – like storing passwords ON their devices, or not setting up PIN access – can also undermine the efforts.
