Repost, with Comments: Top 5 BYOD Security Trends

The Information Security group on LinkedIn recently published a report that Mobile Enterprise covered, discussing the top 5 security trends around BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) security issues.

What was interesting in the survey was the lack of adoption in creating and enforcing BYOD policies within enterprises. The report states that only 20% of companies have a developed BYOD policy in place.  This is surprisingly low given the proliferance of devices, applications and solutions based upon mobile technology.  Notwithstanding the productivity increases (the study did state that the #1 trend was improved employee productivity/mobility/satisfaction)  there is still a reluctance to fully embrace and deploy mobile solutions.  Perhaps we as an industry need to jointly address security concerns?
