Microsoft's Tim Rains, Director, Trustworthy Computing with Jim Reavis, executive director of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) talked about the "Bring Your Own Device" at the RSA Conference in San Francisco few weeks ago.

"The consumerization of IT, referred to by many people as "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD), is a very hot topic these days as organizations grapple with the challenge of managing the risks in allowing their data to be placed on personal mobile devices, like smart phones. The challenge here is that some of the devices that employees decide to bring to work might not have the basic security or management capabilities. This challenge is compounded by the risks associated with these same devices connecting to ubiquitous social networks and the diverse ways organizations and people are choosing to connect and share data today - such as the utilization of cloud services," noted Rains.
