Freedom versus control
By Dale Vile
One of the hottest debates in the IT industry at the moment is around the use of personal technology and personal internet service accounts for work purposes. But is there business benefit to be gained by granting employees the flexibility to use what they like and pay for it themselves? And how can the potential be unlocked without creating unintended consequences?
In this report, we explore the use of personal devices for business, along with the related practice of employees accessing personal email, social media and other accounts while at work.

This report looks at the nature and level of activity, motivations and drivers, unintended consequences, and the practicalities of managing potential costs and risks.
