Last month Michelle McNickle wrote an article for Healthcare IT News titled, “10 of the largest data breaches in 2012 … so far”. Numerous headlines have showcased some large health data breaches, and according to recent research, the problem is only growing. While the focus of her article is on data breaches in the health care industry, I think that the lessons are relevant to all organizations.

The world will have 15 billion devices in 2 years -- twice the number of people on Planet Earth today -- with 50 billion devices projected by 2015, says HP CTO for Communications and Media Solutions, Jeff Edlund in this video live from HP Discover 2012 where he converses with Nigel Upton on the explosion of content and data in the Internet. Jeff characterizes this phenomenon as a Data Tsunami – which I find to be quite apt given these numbers.

We live in an on-demand, ultra-connected world with communications gadgets that seem eerily similar to the stuff we see in science fiction movies. We expect to be able to reach anyone at anytime, and I don’t know about you, but I get a bit irritated when I can’t get in touch with someone instantly. And why not, we’ve got numerous ways to communicate now – mobile phones, email, Twitter, Facebook, texting, instant messages – so I SHOULD be able to reach someone immediately via at least one of these methods. This is great for me, but somewhat challenging for companies.
ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick writes about a cash strapped state agency requiring employees to use their own smart phones without reimbursing them. Red flags went up in my mind as I read about it – especially the part about employees not being reimbursed. However, upon careful reflection, I realized that this is a pattern that has evolved over the years and such steps are a long time coming. With the explosion of devices and data and practical concerns about security, we are giving more importance to the concept of bringing your own device than we did to similar concepts in the past.
