"When I ask security experts if they have a BYOD program at work and they say "No," I say, "Yes you do. It's just not authorized."
Actually, we don't. We do not allow any personal devices on our corporate network. Sure, they can access some information from the web that can be accessed on a computer with a browser, but I wouldn't consider that BYOD. Even those cases are very rare, as we have computers everywhere. There is NO BYOD at our company - it's not being naive, it's called network security. No personal device is allowed on the corporate wireless intranet and the guest wireless is on a whole diff Last time I checked, no mobile devices can plug into the physical network. Am I missing something here? Maybe our definitions of BYOD are different?
To the article's point, there was a quote about wearables connecting directly to the internet - I don't know of any. Sure, there are medical sensors that do that, but I don't know if they would be considered a "wearable". It's a good point though - the definition of wearable might not be limited to form.
