Young employees don’t care about corporate policies

There’s a growing appetite of Generation Y employees to contravene corporate policies governing use of own devices, personal cloud storage accounts and new technologies such as smart watches, Google Glass and connected cars.
Based on findings from an independent 20-country survey of 3,200 employees aged 21-32 conducted during October 2013, Fortinet research also describes the extent to which Generation Y have been victims of cybercrime on their own devices, their ‘threat literacy’ and their widespread practice for storing corporate assets on personal cloud accounts.

Despite respondents’ positivity about their employers’ provisions for BYOD policy, with 45% agreeing this ‘empowers’ them, in total, 51% stated they would contravene any policy in place banning the use of personal devices at work or for work purposes.
