There are actually a handful of companies that address this issue. If someone wants to bring their personal device to work but be able to use it to access work email, calendars etc - companies like Citrix make products that enable secure email that the company can wipe out if the phone is lost, but will not touch personal data. Or there is the multi SIM option which might limit your phone choices.
Score: Dilbert: 0 Company: 1
I agree with LM. There are companies that expect you to use your own phone for work but if you read their Mobile Device Use Policy, it says that if the phone is lost or stolen, or even if your employment is terminated FOR ANY REASON, the company has the right to remotely wipe all data on the phone, INCLUDING personal data like mails, contacts, pictures etc. I want the company's hands off my phone. If a mobile phone is needed for business use, my employer needs to provide a separate phone and pay for it.
Two reasons for the company phone:
- Catbert needs to monitor your calls so he can decide which of you to fire next.
- In the event of you sharing company secrets, the CEO installed a remotely detonatable plastic explosive on the phone.
Why do you carry a personal phone? Are you planing to give away company secrets?
