Mobility and the changing role of the CIO

Do CIO’s consult with employees about security policies? In this video, Jim Love of IT World Canada interviews Warren Shiau, IDC’s Consulting Director, Buyer Behaviour Practices to explore how mobility — and bring-your-own-devices (BYOD) is causing CIO’s to adopt a more collaborative stance with regard to security policies. A recent IDC study reports that CIO’s are not only listening to employee feedback, many report that they are changing their security policies based on that feedback. Warren Shiau explains why this makes sense as companies now see mobility not just as a tool but as a way to increase employee engagement and enhance productivity.
