BYOD not only affects security which is what most people focus on what about the limited or finite amount of bandwidth that your business has? We had a customer recently who was not able to process any transactions on there proprietary business system. After looking at logs from our managed router in this instance we were able to see that over 90% of the business bandwidth was being used at almost all periods of time when they were having issues. We found out that employees while they were on break were using there personal devices on the company WIFI. This was not something done on purpose but they were using too many available resources which caused problems. You need to not only have a policy for security but also for network resource use.
