Has mobile computing had a positive impact on cybersecurity?

Jon Oltsik | March 12, 2014
Counterintuitive perspective, but in the end, mobile computing chaos may help improve enterprise cybersecurity strategy.

The whole notion of "shadow IT" and mobile computing suggest that the IT department will have less control in the future. This is a new reality, and CISOs have to learn how to support rather than fight these changes. As IT control dissipates, CISOs must gain greater oversight over the assets they DO control - data, applications, user identities, and IT infrastructure like servers and networks. Ironically, the avalanche of mobile computing security challenges may have ultimately served as a catalyst that guides cybersecurity policies, processes, and controls in the right direction.
