Security and Mobility

Business, using modern computer networking, is increasing its collaborative mode in working with customers, suppliers and partners. In doing so, companies invite external parties into the inner sanctum of their computing systems. Moreover increasing the use of new devices for remote interaction as well as conducting business electronically is advantageous from both cost and logistical perspectives. While this improves productivity, it also brings a new set of privacy and security risks in protecting sensitive corporate data, intellectual property, and customer data. Security is actually a risk management problem, the pertinent question for the CIO then becomes: What are CIOs willing to give up and do for a specific level of control and certainty? The fundamental aspect of this debate is that it’s not just all about money.
