Don’t Be Careless with Your Phone
Jason is the regional manager of a large restaurant franchise, overseeing operations for 32 limited-menu restaurants in a major metropolitan area in the Northwest. Although his work requires him to be in regular daily contact with his location mangers and suppliers, his corporate parent does not provide him with a corporate cell phone. Jason uses his own phone in a bring your own device (BYOD) arrangement to send and receive e-mail from his corporate account and communicate with his managers and assistant managers as well as his supply chain contacts. In order to connect to his company’s e-mail server, Jason is required to use a four-digit PIN on his phone. Some other rules and regulations are displayed on screen, but Jason simply clicks “agree” without reading those.
