malek's curator insight, September 17, 2013 8:23 AM

A myriad of threats:

* Employers often cannot assess data breach exposure on unmanaged BYODs

*Lost or stolen BYODs  that  contain sensitive data, with less than 1 in 4 can be remotely wiped.

* When BYODs bypass inbound filters normally applied to corporate devices, they’re vulnerable to malware

and the list goes on and on


Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, September 25, 2013 11:41 PM

Interesting BYOD stats.

Correct Jesse ! Everything is monitored, saved as logs, the so called meta-data. Still there is much possibilities to opt-out from being tracked. Applications,Browser extensions may help to some extend. Just dont post something that you never want to be displayed in public out loud as an embarrassment. :) Thank You so much for the comment Jesse! I appreciate your comment!

#CyberSecurity : A buffet of 2014 Security and Privacy Predictions

#CyberSecurity : A buffet of 2014 Security and Privacy Predictions | Security-And-Privacy | Scoop.it

Have you been wondering what trends in security and privacy ESET researchers are predicting for 2014? The following is a sampling, a year-end snack plate if you will. (Later in the month we will also be serving a main course of 2014 predictions in the form of a whitepaper from our colleagues in Latin America.)

Perennial readers of the ESET blog will know researchers do not relish making predictions, and yet each year we make them. Why? Because some people ask nicely, and because there is some practical value in looking ahead at where future attacks on information systems might come from, and in what form. Sometimes we name trends that are already in motion, like Bring Your Own Device, which has been a trend for several years. But we only draw attention to an ongoing trend if we think its persistence has implications for security and privacy (for example, one of researchers sees the increasing diversity of cheap smartphones adding to the BYOD challenge).
