BYOD, data security and the BlackBerry Experience

I am moderating what will almost certainly be a fascinating discussion about BYOD, enterprise data security and device management at the BlackBerry Experience event at Montecasino in Fourways, Johannesburg today. The event is hosted by BlackBerry in partnership with ITWeb Events and will also take place in Durban and Cape Town later this month.

The speakers at the event will include Nader Henein, BlackBerry’s Regional Director for Product Security; Izak Meyer, Director for Enterprise at BlackBerry South Africa; Wikus Viljoen, a systems analyst at Nedbank and Andy Swanepoel, a technical specialist and manager at Nedbank.

We are going to talk a bit about BYOD trends (and the growing tendency towards more managed deployments), a better strategy for securing data on mobile devices and more. I don’t want to say too much about the content attendees can expect but I find much of it fascinating. You can follow the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #BBExperience if you aren’t attending the event.



Disclosure: I am being paid to participate in and moderate the panels at these events. That said, I make a point of only promoting products and services that I am interested in.
