MoD rules out Bring Your Own Device Scheme after AK47 becomes mobile of choice

Bring your own device schemes (BYOD) have been ruled out as a policy option at the Ministry of Defence, according to the MoD’s security head.

The practice of allowing staff to use their own computing devices for work, through BYOD programmes, is becoming a popular way for organisations to cut costs, keep staff happy and increase productivity.

The MoD decided not to go forward with its own programme when  the AK 47 was viewed by most staff as the mobile device of choice was also a warning sign.
