Information Security Media Group announces the launch of its latest panel webinar, "BYOD: Manage the Risks and Opportunities," which will debut March 14, 2012.

The 90-minute session is led by security expert Malcolm Harkins, CISO, Intel, and it is sponsored by Fixmo, VASCO Data Security and Zenprise. In addition to Harkins, it will feature insight from Dan Ford, Chief Security Officer, Fixmo; Benjamin Wyrick, Director - Sales, VASCO Data Security; and Ahmed Datoo, Chief Product Officer, Zenprise.

About the session: From smart phones to tablets, laptops to USB devices, consumer technologies are ubiquitous in the workplace - and so is the 'bring-your-own-device' (BYOD) practice of allowing employees to conduct work on their own personal electronics.

But how do these consumer technologies change organizations' approaches to securing corporate information assets?

Join this panel of mobile technology experts for a thorough discussion of the risks and rewards of enabling BYOD, with an emphasis on how to manage the mix of consumer devices in the workplace, as well as enforcing key tenets of your mobile policy. Among the discussion points:

  • How to properly inventory your employees' personal devices;
  • Technology solutions to protect your corporate systems and data, as well as the end-point devices;
  • Strategies and tactics for enforcing mobile policies & maintaining compliance in regulated industries;
  • How to use BYOD as an opportunity to enable further proliferation of data and access security.
