Hello Everyone! If you missed the SANS mobility survey webcast on October 23 - here is a link to the replay and to the slides: [Warning - you have to register to see the replay and to get the slides]
The webcast had a lot of great information about how organizations are setting up and managing their mobile access policies. Here are a couple of key takeaways:
1. Who is most concerned about mobile access policy?
Security Analysts >> CISOs >> CIOs - the focus is coming from the risk and security office - so what does that mean for the IT teams?
2. How important is mobile policy?
77% said "Critical" or "Extremely Important" - so this means mobile access policies will get a lot of attention.
3. When asked about the state of their mobile policies:
Over 35% said they didn't have a mobile access policy and another 35% said they simply ask their employees to sign a usage agreement. So basically ~70% of the respondents were not actively managing or monitoring mobile access.
Be sure to watch the webcast replay for all of the details.
Box, Oracle and RSA were all co-sponsors of the survey and webcast and all were invited to give a brief presentation at the end.
