Text messaging theft
Let's face it: Some employees are just bad seeds who want to take confidential information before fleeing to a competitor. With BYOD smartphones, it's a lot easier for them to get away with it. These "bad leavers" swipe and send data in text messages, which are nearly impossible to track.
"Text messaging appears only on the phones and nowhere else on the corporate network," says Paul Luehr, managing director at Stroz Friedberg, adding, "It's increasingly common to see [bad leavers] text messaging their buddies across town and conveying private or valuable information that way."
