Before the end of this year there will be more smart phones than PCs, and in 2015 there will be more tablets than PCs. Mobile work styles are becoming the rule rather than the exception in Enterprise IT and traditional methods of securing data behind VPNs will fall short as employees demand business tools that are as easy to use and frequently updated as the ones they use at home.
Unfortunately, legal and regulatory requirements for securing data are no less stringent than they were before the mobile era.
As we experience the paradigm shift to mobile work styles, how does IT reconcile the competing priorities of consumerization and standardization?
In this session we’ll cover these issues and attendees will learn:
•What Napster can teach us about BYOD
•Practical steps to striking the balance between app usability and convenience as well as security and control
•How to protect corporate data and intellectual property if an employee leaves the company or loses their device
•Compliance issues with laws such as HIPAA and FINRA and how they apply to data sync and sharing
Who should attend:
•IT professionals who are looking for alternatives to consumer solutions like Dropbox
•Managers who want to protect their investments in current infrastructure while increasing their bottom line through real-time data access and collaboration
•Analysts and writers seeking information on enterprise collaboration strategies and solutions
•IT executives involved in meeting governance and compliance requirements
