+ - British and US take a dim view of BYOD for government workers->

Submitted by rsmiller510
rsmiller510 (1051940) writes "We've seen private sector businesses embracing Bring Your Own Device in a big way and finding ways to balance protecting company data and employee privacy, but the US and British governments are reluctant to join their business counterparts and offer similar policies either out of timidity or security concerns. If all were more concerned with protecting from the data, to the apps and finally the device, it might change their point of view. The flaw in the government approach is to see the device as the key part of the security, when it should be the last part, not the first."
