Are UK firms violating GDPR by not implementing BYOD policies?

Only 54% of organisations in the UK have adopted formal BYOD policies even though 72% of organisations have embraced BYOD and SaaS application adoption.

Organisations in the UK could end up violating GDPR provisions if they do not adopt formal BYOD policies by the time the new law arrives.

Even though BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has been a subject of much debate the world over because of the inherent security risks involved with employees using their personal devices at work, a number of nations have crafted new frameworks to ensure that organisations do not put sensitive corporate or personal data at risk even if they actively adopt and promote BYOD.
