Security and Enterprise Week Recap
Our mobile devices are more than just portals to the internet. They carry important information on our daily lives, our business, and, yes, they are portals to the internet - the internet that we've built with our histories and logins. Talk Mobile Security and Enterprise week was all about keeping these devices secure, getting work done on them, and making sure that work doesn't overwhelm the personal, and personal doesn't overwhelm the work.
When we conceived of Talk Mobile, our hope was that we could instigate a broader set of discussions about what these mobile devices really do and mean. And though we expected Security and Enterprise to be a dry week as far as the discussion was concerned, you all really stepped up and made the conversation happen. So we've picked out the best comments and highlighted them below.

Conclusion and what's next!
Security is becoming more and more important with each passing month. Hardly a week goes by where we don't hear about another compromised database or lost device bearing sensitive information. With more and more of our data on our mobile devices and online, being vigilant with our security measures is simply a necessary step. To not be so is to court disaster.
Mobile has also taken enterprise by storm. It's no longer a world of just BlackBerry smartphones for the executives and road warriors - no, everybody can do mobile business now. The IT infrastructure has evolved to support a wider ranger of devices from a veritable cornucopia of sources, including the employee's own pocket. Of course, having work on your own personal smartphone can have its own pitfalls, not the least of which is that you're bringing work home with you in your pocket.
With week five wrapped up, it's time to move on to week six, where the discussion is going to center on the cloud. What is "the cloud"? What are we supposed to use it for and how? Are there dark sides under the silver lining? And will you need an umbrella? There are clouds on the horizon, and now is the time to talk about them.
As always, now it's your turn. We want to know what you thought Talk Mobile Security and Enterprise week? Tell us what you loved, what you hated, what you want to see more of, less of, and changed. Whatever you want - we're listening, because the floor is yours.
