    Great advice. As organizations move towards being truly mobile, the security component needs to remain at the core.  Its unfortunate that so many start embracing BYOD without first developing strategies that make sense strategically.  Ongoing success also hinges on IT’s willingness to maintain discussions and evolve with user changes.
