Don't be overprotective about BYOD

Bubble_boy.jpgIf you are a parent today, you live your life in fear. Everything needs to be sanitized with 99.7 percent anti-bacterial soap to protect your kids from the germs that surround us. The corporate world isn't much different in their thinking  when it comes to Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies. We have security and IT executives who are scared to death that viruses from the outside are going to walk in on their employee's smartphones and attack their networks.

 

I recently wrote a post on informationweek.com that talks about what precautions you need to go to in protecting your networks from BYOD. I  encourage you to read it here.
