In the framework of the TRUEDEV project, the University of Namur presented a talk on the ethical, sociological and judicial stakes of BYOD at the symposium organised by the "Unesco chair on Technology and Communication Practices for the development" in Bordeaux.

This symposium aims at exploring emerging practices of portable technologies integrated in education methods, analysing their contribution to the socio-economic development and deciphering the strategies of the concerned players.

This talk frames itself in the call titled: "Worldwide Digital Economy and Innovation".

TRUEDEV, supported by the Walloon Region and initiated by four partners: UCL, UNamur, BlueKrypt and Qilium, studies the security of privately owned devices in the BYOD context (bring your own device) in a company.

The publication is structured around to essential points:

  • Social acceptability and sustainability in the design of a technology linked to security.
  • Societal and legal stakes of the BYOD (working differently, nuanced reality, responsibility sharing, control…).
