Re: Protecting the access of data
@Stratustician Great point here: "it is so important to ensure the right policies are in place to ensure not only are you securely accessing these resources, but that any data transmitted to the [mobile] devices is protected too." Question for you: do you think we have the technology necessary to really enforce those policies yet?
