Question: How can an employer control or monitor an employees access of company information on the employees own device?

Answer: The use of mobile devices and remote access by employees has resulted in a dramatic increase in the need for up-to-date workplace technology policies. While it used to be reasonable to update policies every few years, the current pace is quite a bit quicker when it comes to technology. Ignoring emerging issues is not an option.
