VA CIO wary of 'bring your own device'
Tuesday - 6/5/2012, 8:36am EDT
The Veteran Affairs' Roger Baker said much as he likes the idea of BYOD, he's wary of it because of cybersecurity concerns. He told an audience at the Management of Change Conference earlier this week he didn't trust it. VA is actually testing ways of letting employees choose their own devices.
But Baker preferred setups in which agency data stayed on VA servers and is not stored on employee gadgets once they disconnect. VA makes employees sign waivers giving the department control over the devices when they are connected.
