Ilan Sredni, Author/Speaker and President of Palindrome Consulting was recently featured as a Key Note Speaker for the Uptown Business Networking Group. The Uptown Business Networking group includes 3 top chambers; the North Miami Beach Chamber, North Miami Chamber and Aventura Sunny Isles Beach Chamber.
Mr. Sredni discussed the hot controversial BYOD “bring your own devices to work” topic with Uptown’s entrepreneurs’, professionals and organizations so they could assess the pros and cons, and re-define their own communications plans.
Today PCs, tablets and smartphones are the big trend in the workplace environment. They are also creating quite a stir with many issues to consider. Some believe that BYOD helps productiveness, while increasing morale and convenience. Employees today have come to expect that they will be able to use their mobile devices and smartphones at work. BYOD can also save company money on electronics while making them to appear to be more flexible and attractive. The latest reports indicate that businesses have increased staff- productivity because they’re consistently plugged in. Sredni said, “BYOD also creates security issues for employers, professionals and employees to consider. Confidential client information is carried around on these BYOD devices and 12.5 million people experience Identity Theft annually. The devices can compromise a company’s security. Smart businesses today know that it’s important to create a secure BYOD policy that clearly defines the company’s position and governance policy to help ensure that IT can keep their business information network secure.”
The engaging presentation had the audience asking questions and commenting as Mr. Sredni shed light on the BYOD phenomena that has changed the way that we do business.
