BYOD in Government: Prepare for The Rising Tide

Oct 15, 2012

Forrester’s recent study of the use of personal devices for work purposes within government organizations has yielded the following key findings:

Government employees use personal devices for work purposes.

  • Yet BYOD policies are nascent if not non-existent.
  • Security concerns impede policy roll-out for many organizations.
  • BYOD implications extend beyond IT to human resources and legal concerns.
  • CIOs craft BYOD strategies to enable productivity while protecting application and data security.

The use of personal devices for work-purposes is increasing, even in government organizations. It is widely accepted that over time new employees will request the use of the device they know. Read the Forrester paper, “BYOD in Government: Prepare for the Rising Tide” to learn more about these findings and to gain a valuable starting point for embarking on the journey toward BYOD.
