Survey of Federal CyberSecurity Managers Shows Mobile Disconnect

A new survey of more than over 100 federal IT security managers, including senior management, IT operations, and risk and audit managers, shows that while government expands its use of mobile devices in the workplace, only about a third of agencies – 38 percent -- have a strategy for monitoring those devices.


The so-called "bring your own device," or BYOD, policy has been a hot-button security issue for the past several years, particularly since the mobile computing world has exploded with a wide array of device options, from smart phones to tablets, all of which introduce new complexities and potential security vulnerabilities for agency networks and sensitive information.
