The 160,000 member Information Security Community on LinkedIn conducted the survey “BYOD & Mobile Security 2013” to shed some light on the drivers for BYOD, how companies will benefit from BYOD, and how they respond to the security risks associated with this trend. With 1,600 responses, some interesting insights and patterns into BYOD were uncovered.
