Winn Schwartau, President and Founder of The Security Awareness Company, has been in the industry for over 30 years. He's one of the world’s top experts on IT security, privacy, cyber-terrorism and related topics. Mr Schwartau is also a renowned writer and speaker and at Hacker Halted Europe 2013 he talked about the topic of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

In his keynote speech, entitled “The ABC’s of BYOD”, Mr Schwartau spoke about the possible impact of poor mobile security and how insufficient Mobile Device Management (MDM) might result in serious legal consequences for your business.

Besides describing the potential threats faced by BYOD users, Mr Schwartau also discussed possible means of improving the security of mobile devices. To see what else he talked about, watch this video:
