Thanks Tank. Further to that French study: Here is a nugget worth considering: "The report's authors analogize the tracking of personal behavior on the Internet to the creation of value using unpaid labor provided by Internet users" Discuss?

Re: BYOD Policies
Not surprised in the least. It's a brave new world when it ultimately comes to BYOD. Things tend to get hairy -- a wild west scenario -- before organizations figure out the best practices that work.

Re: IT's role
This may encourage things.  How about a privacy tax as France is considering?

'Privacy tax' would hit firms that profit from data

"The French study recommends that companies which misuse or fail to protect consumers' datawould have to pay a punitive new tax, with the rate rising along with the severity of the misstep. It also provides incentives to firms that exceed current regulations to protect consumers' information. "

Re: IT's role
Indeed true. Imparting the necessary education to each employee for usage of BYOD is important and can be seen as one important step for the betterment of BYOD.

BYOD Policies
Peter, you are right. Since BYOD is a new concept most of the system admin peoples are not sure about what are the things included & not included in policy. But like a blind thing, they are restricting access to certain corporate datas and denying the access. Since there is no concrete/written  policies, they are not able to communicate ot to the employees too.

I think they need some training and tutorial(getting started) to employees to make sure they understand how to correctly use their applications and BYOD devices, make the most of their mobile capabilities, and implement guidelines on how to use BYOD devices.

I think they need to write clear and concise policies for all employess who want to use their BYOD devices. All employess should read and sign BYOD terms of use. There's always solution in this problem.

Re: IT's role
Corporate data leakage? It's one of the most important issue in today's BYOD,  mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are simply the latest tools to threaten corporate security, but there are solutions to these security challenges that will satisfy both the company and employee. Company should have a framework for an effective BYOD policy, it need to meet corporate's security requirements. There's no easy solution here that will fix all these issues folks, it rather a combination of proper policies, IT education, industry best practices and last the third part solutions ( third party vendors or IT specialize in BYOD solutions plays a key role here).

Re: IT's role
and as for BYOD I don't find any solutions to the bigger problem unfortunately.. 

It has been long that we have been debating of BYOD's failure, but we have not discussed how to counteract each problem and found it implemented anywhere. It is more like, we know one solution is IT having to educate employees etc, but why ain't we seeing it being implemented in any firm as yet?

Re: IT's role
@K Good point there, IT is often really poor and managing comms and this may well be a big part of the problem.
