Assuming security issues associated with a bring your own device (BYOD) policy have been formalized in your disaster recovery policy, the BYOD policy should then include provisions to have the intellectual property contained in the personal device backed up at a prescribed frequency, such as daily or twice per day, using an automated backup tool such as Carbonite (www.carbonite.com).
The BYOD policy may stipulate that replacement of approved devices from a disaster is the responsibility of the owner. It may state that the company may capture and retain a full image of the user's system at a secure location (e.g., cloud-based backup service) for recovery if the device is damaged or lost.
