re: Army Falls Short In Mobile Security, Says DOD
I would have to wonder at this point if it's a matter of West Point and the ERDC simply not asking for permission to start their programs or not having the patience to wait for the go-ahead for their programs. If the lack of attention by the CIO's office is slowing the process down, perhaps that's where some attention needs to be paid.

It's a mobile world, and a workforce without mobile capabilities is handcuffed - that's obvious to anyone in the business. However, security and following appropriate guidelines/procedures, especially in the case of handling classified or other sensitive information needs to be the absolute top priority.
