Abstract

Outside the traditional business institutions and learning models, a number of organizations and academic institutions are looking to add bring your own device (BYOD) policies. Businesses and K-12 schools are supplying teachers with devices that can be an aid in working/learning; universities are increasingly allowing students to bring their own devices to add to the enrichment of the programs. BYOD–based technology and it applications have numerous benefits, but they can be difficult to implement. They usually result in lower costs for the business, but they often require the organization to adapt. Since there are so many constraints and situations that could inhibit the security of the business, some businesses are hesitant to use BYOD in their business.
