As the BYOD trend finds broader acceptance in the workplace here's what organisations need to do to minimise security headaches.

If the acceptance of the bring your own device (BYOD) trend in Australia could be transposed into the five stages of grief, we’d be at the bargaining stage. That's how enterprise software outfit NetIQ’s APAC product and business manager for identity, security & governance, Ian Yip describes the current situation.
