The Wall Street Journal has noticed the growing issues around securing data on personal devices. The BYOD movement has some serious downsides. Companies are implementing phone wipes (reset to factory default) for employee and contractor phones as part of their BYOD programs. When contract/employment ends the phone is wiped. Very few people have backups for their phone, and very few people notice or recall the terms of the BYOD program. Lots of personal information is getting destroyed as a result.
I practice maximum corporate/personal separation. I'm now fanatic to the point of bringing a personal and a corporate laptop while traveling. I've been through one hostile corporate takeover where I saw what can happen to company laptops. The separation of function has only been directly beneficial once. It made recovery from a failed disk drive while traveling easy. Corporate could recover their stuff onto a replacement laptop that reached me the next day. The rest of the time it's a nuisance. But a data wipe is too traumatic to risk.
