This paper explores the security challenges of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for users and organisations by identifying the security threats to mobile devices. Based on these challenges, this paper will aim to identify the security education, training and awareness approaches and concepts based on existing literature to form an understanding of how users can be motivated to commit to BYOD policies and practices. The extent in which users are accountable for the security threats related to BYOD is found to be significant in this paper. It is therefore critical that organisations considering implementing BYOD should focus on developing the education, training and awareness programs for its employees based on concepts of motivation, commitment, knowledge retention and the tradeoff between user/device monitoring and user privacy.
