BYOD Creates Trust Gap Between Workers and Employers

BYOD Creates Trust Gap Between Workers and Employers

Only three out of 10 employees completely trust their employer to keep personal information private. The others aren't so sure. This should be a warning sign to CIOs that they've got a trust gap to overcome.

The problem gets worse if you've got a "bring your own device" (BYOD) policy that favors corporate efforts to keep company data safe over employee privacy rights.

BYOD has become a flashpoint for privacy, says Ojas Rege, vice president of strategy at MobileIron, a mobile device management software developer.

MobileIron commissioned a survey of 3,000 workers across the United States, U.K. and Germany to learn more about the trust gap in the enterprise. The infographic below illustrates the survey's findings:
