Are IT groups really ready for BYOD security challenges?

LinkedIn survey finds enterprise mobility still in infancy.

One of the oddest set of answers came in response to the question "What negative impact did mobile security threats have on your organization?" The largest percentage, 30% of respondents, selected "additional IT resources needed to manage mobile security." The answer almost suggests that these respondents see mobile security as a drag or a problem, rather than an enabler or solution. A similar percentage, at 27%, said "don't know." Does that indicate a complete lack of visibility into the mobile threat landscape? Another 23% picked "none."
