More and more, nonprofit are starting to employ "bring-your-own-device" (BYOD) policies to allow their employees and/or volunteers to access information using their personal handheld devices. BYOD presents advantages: employees no longer need to juggle multiple devices; employee satisfaction can increase because employees can use the device of their own choosing, often with better functionality and apps; nonprofit can reduce the small army of handheld devices necessary to maintain a connected workforce; and nonprofit may be able to reduce costs as employees use their own devices. But BYOD also presents new risks: data breaches; loss of privacy; employee relations issues, such as enforcing acceptable use policies to prevent harassment and other legal claims, and retrieval of data from the employee when employment ends; and the need to administer multiple layers of security, just to name a few.

BYOD policies require thoughtful and careful consideration to prevent BYOD from becoming a nonprofit's "build your own disaster." This program will provide practical guidance for nonprofit organizations on how to reconcile the pros and cons and best practices in crafting an effective BYOD policy for your organization.
