In a recent survey by SearchCompliance, 'security' was cited by an overwhelming 96% of respondents as being among the top concerns regarding BYOD/consumerization of IT. Compliance came in as the second-ranked concern in the survey. That got us thinking...what are your top three BYOD concerns?

    Michael, I'd have to say - based on my security assessment work - that my clients struggle with two things: 1) lack of time to deal with this monster 2) politics - including executives championing BYOD initiatives...off in their own little world like I talk about here: http://www.securityinfowatch.com/article/10713127/get-with-it-the-byod-security-loophole ...which is all based on the reason I give here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323463704578497592337997354.html?mod=WSJ_mgmt_LeftTopNews

    That's an interesting answer Kevin. Where would you put security on that list? Below lack of time and politics?

    Security is the obvious answer that can be fixed somewhat easily with the proper MDM system combined with other controls such as DLP and encryption. The hard parts are the ones I listed, especially politics.

    Security I think still ranks as number one in my mind. I do not know how many times a user has stopped me in the hall and asked me to fix an issue with their company supplied desktop. I'd hate to see what they do on their own mobile devices. If they do not follow company policy for company hardware, I hate to think what you could be setting yourself up for. I have seen what some of my friends have on their handhelds and tablets and I would not want them connecting to my network. I still think there needs to be a separation between work and personal use. just my 2cp
