Organizations face new and growing security challenges as consumer technology continues to be integrated into organizational workflows. Bring your own device (BYOD) is a phenomenon that is here to stay; however, securing employee’s personally-owned devices may require the organizations to consider exerting some control over the employee’s device. In order for organizations to secure access to their sensitive information in this way, they must first garner the employee’s consent. This research seeks to model employee acceptance of employer control by constructing a model of employee acceptance based upon the extant acceptance literature. Future research can test the model by operationalizing the proposed constructs and applying a quantitative survey methodology. The results from this research could potentially aid in the development of future BYOD security measures and help employers develop effective strategies for implementing BYOD security.
