Vol. 22  No. 7  pp. 371-382


The trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is gaining popularity all over the world with its innumerable benefits such as financial gain, greater employee satisfaction, better job efficiency, boosted morale, and improved flexibility. However, this unstoppable and inevitable trend also brings its own challenges and risks while managing and controlling corporate data and networks. BYOD is vulnerable to attacks by viruses, malware, or spyware that can reach sensitive data and disclose information, modify access policies, disrupt services, create financial issues, minimise productivity, and entail some legal implications. The key focus of this research is how Saudi Arabia has approached BYOD with the help of their 5-step solution model and quantitative research methodology. The result of this study is a statement about what users know about this trend, their opinions about it, and suggestion to increase the employee awareness.
