The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a privacy advocacy group, has taken upon itself to evaluate the secure messaging products that are available on the market. There may be some surprises in store for companies that have already paid for a particular vendor's product.
The Internet of Things revolution is under way, and CIOs need to consider way to securely incorporate IoT devices, apps and platforms into their company.
I came across an interesting blog post this week by Kitty Weldon, principal analyst for enterprise mobility at Current Analysis, who noted the mobile application platform market is moving to cloud-based services.
Overall, it seems the enterprise has little to worry about as far as "no drone zones" go. To be fair, the level of regulation the FAA currently places on drone use limits them enough that no fly zones are more than likely outside of companies' use either geographically, or in terms of the work being done in the first place.
As mobile devices and apps flood the enterprise, many IT teams are becoming obsessed with keeping mobile malware off of devices and networks. But this is the wrong focus, said Andrew Hoog, CEO and founder of mobile security firm NowSecure. It's not mobile malware, but mobile apps that leak sensitive data that should be the focus of enterprise IT teams.
One of the most obvious signs of that transformation is the changes Apple has made to iOS mobile operating system. Based on what Apple did with iOS 8, we can eeven more exciting enterprises features with iOS 9, expected to be unveiled at WWDC in June.
I came across in interesting commentary by security blogger Michele Chubirka. She observed that implementing a successful BYOD program is less about technology and more about organizational politics and employee psychology.
While BYOD in the U.S. has numerous legal issues to consider, those issues increase exponentially when an organization is multinational.
There is no substitute for strong policies and stronger technology when it comes to BYOD security.
Implementing a BYOD policy is definitely a more complicated affair in Europe. The complexity of the privacy regulations in Europe no doubt discourages many firms from even attempting a BYOD program.
