Ever wonder why it seems your employees aren't following your acceptable use policies when it comes to personal computers, smartphones and other personal devices in the workplace? It's quite possible they don't even know such policies exist, according to Cisco's Connected World Report. Earlier this week, we examined the report for perspective on how IT decision-makers worldwide view employee adherence to the acceptable-use policies for tools such as social media, mobile devices, and video. We also examined how IT decision-makers view their relationship with employees; a fifth of respondents described that relationship as "strained and dysfunctional."
