Regarding
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies
Request

The questions relate to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and/or adoption practices. By BYOD I refer to the ability of council employees and/or councillors to access council email and/or council software using their own personal devices, such as smartphones, tablet devices, personal computers:

1. Do you have a BYOD policy, or formally documented procedures?

2. If you have a policy or formally documented procedures, please could you provide a copy or a link to the document(s).

3. Do you allow employees and/or councillors to access council email and/or council software using their own personal devices, such as smartphones, tablet devices, personal computers?

4. If you do not allow BYOD, was this a conscious decision taken?

5. If a conscious decision was taken, what was/were the reason(s)?

6. If you do allow BYOD, what percentage or number of your workforce use it?
