Bring your own device to work (BYOD) policy

A policy for employers that wish to allow their employees to use their own smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices for work either while at the office or during non-working hours. This policy applies only to private workplaces in the UK. Among other things, it deals with acceptable use, information security, expectations of privacy, the employer's right of access, and issues surrounding technical support and responsibility for running costs.
