'What, me worry' Teleworkforce
Monday - 1/24/2011, 5:00am EST
Taking a look at "Mobile Computing at Federal Agencies: Frequency, Functionality, & Security - A Candid Survey of Federal Executives," the Government Business Council found that of the federal executive who telework, "80 percent of respondents with mobile devices indicate they not concerned about their ability to secure them."
Specifically, by "secure," they mean theft, losing or damaging the device.
When asked about those three, 12 percent said theft was a concern, 10 percent said losing an agency device was a concern, and damaging it was a concern of 7 percent. Three percent said there is some unspecified "other" concern.
"None of the above" was checked by 80 percent of the 211 question respondents.
