Shopping on the Job 


2011 Shopping on the Job Survey: 
Online Holiday Shopping and BYOD Security

ISACA’s fourth annual "Shopping on the Job" survey examines employees’ risky online activities while using work-issued computers.

The survey also examines the growing “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend that is blurring the lines between personal and corporate devices.


The global survey results reveal:

  • The number of employees who plan to use a work-supplied device to shop online—and how much time they’ll spend shopping
  • The risky activities employees say they do online
  • Cost of lost productivity that business and IT professionals expect their enterprises to experience
  • Whether companies permit BYOD—and if the risk outweighs the benefits
  • Whether companies tend to ban, limit or freely allow employees to shop online and visit social networking sites
