A Legal Guide to Enterprise Mobile Device Management: Managing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Select a format
The "Mobile Transformation" is underway. Walking around our cities and towns, it seems that everyone has a smart phone in hand. In the office, at home, and in the airports, tablet computers seem to sprout like spring flowers. Besides offering us voice, email, and text communications on the go, our mobile devices are giving us access to the world's information via the Mobile Internet more or less anytime and anywhere. Mobile applications ("apps" for short) are giving us a huge variety of tools we can use for day-to-day tasks, in business, at home, for education, and as entertainment. As workers use smart phones, tablets, and laptops for both their work and their personal lives, chief information officers face the complex challenges of managing mobile devices in the business setting.
A Legal Guide to Enterprise Mobile Device Management: Managing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Employer-Issued Device Programs examines key concepts, considerations, and issues in mobile device management-from business, legal, and technical perspectives. In addition, the chapters provide background information on business drivers and technology, with the goal of aiding lawyers in counseling their clients. A sample motion device policy is included as a starting point for a business' mobile device program documentation. Because the guide is written for a wide audience, it will serve as a helpful reference for business and technology professionals as well as attorneys.
