Don't Turn Your Mobile Users Into Airline Agents

Posted by Ranjeet Vidwans on 5/13/15 10:12 AM

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to spend the day with a number of CISOs at the NextGen Security Summit. It was a mind-expanding view into the concerns, and psyches, of the people who are charged with keeping their organizations safe from digital harm.
