    In healthcare, not having a good BYOD policy can result in large HIPAA fines. A BYOD policy is very important, but it is the education of staff about the policy that will make it a success or failure. An example, our hospital put a BYOD policy in place to use Tigertext for HIPAA complient text messaging, but the doctors still used their unsecure regular SMS text messaging. Even though we had a good BYOD policy, it wasn't enough, we had to bring each doctor in to admin for 15 minutes of training and explaining the HIPAA issues and how to use the app correctly. Now we have about 95% of the doctors in compliance. This has significently lowered the cybersecurity risks and increased productivity for the doctors and the hospital.
