Federal CIOs still say no to BYOD

By Kenneth Corbin, CIO |  Consumerization of IT, BYOD

"Of the people who chose to keep the government-provided devices, the majority of them felt that work and personal should be separate," Hancher says.

Others cited confusion about the rules and responsibilities they would be subjected to under a BYOD policy, and a substantial number chose not to participate simply because they don't own a smartphone.

For them, "it's not a matter of switching. They would have to go and buy -- you know, select a device -- pay for the device, pay for the voice and data service," she says. "And those are some of the reasons why the consumers -- our internal customers -- are not flocking to BYOD."
