BYOD: California ruling a wake-up call

California, the land of sun and surf, has just dealt what some are calling a death knell to BYOD plans by way of a legal ruling set down Aug. 12 by the Court of Appeals.


The recent ruling in California in the Cochran v. Schwan's Home Service case should be  a wakeup call for anyone dealing with BYOD in the enterprise, not just those in California. Though this case doesn't specifically call out data plans, it's a short leap from paying for cell minutes to data.


I took an in-depth look at this and how to handle BYOD in an article for InformationWeek. The article takes a look at the ruling and how a strong BYOD policy can help set you up for success.
