The new acronym is BYOD or Bring Your Own Device, basically your device holds your information – it’s also used in the medical industry, and an Aruba study reports that over 86% of health care personnel use these mobile devices, and one day you can keep your medical information on these devices as well….This certainly may assist in the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), but on the same day a report of a rogue app that apparently will steal all your photos on your device – after you’ve given permission (that terms of use policy we all accept before installing software) – so how then would be it easy to steal your medical records
