Is The Race Toward Mobility Heading For A Compliance Crash?

Compliance and mobility experts to discuss compliance risks from mobile deployments and how to minimize risks in, free the BPM Forum webinar

PALO ALTO , Calif. , November 10, 2022 – The surging popularity of mobile devices in the workplace exposes many corporations to potential regulatory compliance violations and fines. With so many employees of public corporations and highly regulated organizations using handheld computers and smart phones, senior executives are failing to see the inherent risks associated with mobility or implement plans to ensure mobile devices comply with government and industry mandates. This apparent failure to recognize the compliance and security risks associated with mobility are examined in a new study by the Business Performance Management Forum™ (BPM Forum) that seeks to help improve decision-making in large enterprises.

On Wednesday, November 29, 2006, at 2pm EST the BPM Forum and underwriters Sybase, Nokia, and InfoExpress present a complimentary webinar based on qualitative in-depth interviews and broad-based quantitative research involving more than 680 representative respondents. The roundtable discussion will explore the factors behind the organizational “disconnect” between IT, security, and compliance executives as pertaining to mobile devices. The panel will discuss why inter-departmental, multidisciplinary teamwork is needed more than ever to address mobile communication data issues. The discussion will include corporate executives responsible for compliance at their respective organizations and industry compliance, security and mobility experts as well as Webinar attendees who are encouraged to participate.

“These panelists bring a wide range of perspectives and experience in dealing with compliance and mobility issues and should provide an animated, engaging and refreshing look at an issue that is too often ignored by large organizations,” said Donovan Neale-May, executive director of the BPM Forum. “Our research indicates that millions of employees in the field have been armed with mobile devices without a strategy for protecting business critical information that is subject to a wide range of government and industry regulations. We expect this webinar will provide organizations with guidance on how to develop and implement a clear strategy to address the significant compliance risks associated with mobility in the enterprise.”

The research offers some alarming revelations about the state of mobile compliance among corporations. Nearly half of all respondents reported that a quarter or more of all mobile devices in their organization carry mission critical applications and information, yet 40 percent lack any measures in place to manage mobile data tracking, back-up and archiving for regulatory compliance purposes.
