In honor of Apple Watch Launch Day: Wearables Will Increase Enterprise Risks (via CIOInsights.com)
April 10, 2015
It’s launch day for the Apple Watch, so I think this presentation from CIOInsights.com is fitting to discuss today. The article provides an interesting perspective on how the Internet of Things will impact the enterprise as more tech-savvy users seek out
The benefits of the Internet of things (IoT), including wearable devices, outweigh the risks they pose to enterprise, according to a new study, but consumer interest in wearable devices will create complications in the workplace. The survey results appear in the “ISACA 2014 IT Risk/Reward Barometer” report. Most IT professionals who responded to the survey said that bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies are not ready to incorporate bring-your-own-wearable (BYOW).
As for this early adopter, I’m skipping the Apple Watch this year. (I haven’t seen the “killer app” that makes me want what is essentially an accessory for my phone.)
Has your company considered how it will consider wearables and the internet of things in your policies?
