As the world becomes more interconnected, integrated and intelligent, mobile devices are playing an ever-increasing role in changing the way people live, work and communicate.

Personal computing devices are becoming more and more portable laptops, tablets, smart phones, USB thumb drives, etc., securing the sensitive information stored on those devices is more important than ever. The small size and portability of these devices mean they can be easily lost or stolen, placing both personal as well as corporate data at risk.

This two-day program will address the challenges in securing data and processing, limiting communication to designated parties, protecting sensitive data from the loss of a mobile device and methodologies for designing and implementing a viable, controlled and sustainable enterprise-wide BYOD policy.
