Why can’t I just use my own computer at work? Remember when you said that. Be careful what you ask for.
Now you can have it. Along with your phone, your tablets, your smart watch, your google glass… But, along with independence comes responsibility. You have to make sure that the company information you create and use stays where it is supposed to stay.
And if you are responsible for the network, you now have to figure out how to balance the wired and wireless networks, the owned and the unowned, the friendly and the rogue. This panel will provide thought on how to integrate the wired and wireless infrastructures to serve this new world of BYOD. Considerations will include how to create a safe environment for a constantly changing array of user owned devices and the security implications and requirements that result.
