A Presentation on ICT for Lawyers

This post is a summary of a presentation I gave to a group of lawyers on ICT fundamentals. It represents my own opinion, and not that of my employers or anyone else! I apologies for it being so wordy – but a lot of material was covered.

My presentation walked through some fundamental concepts in ICT, some major trends that are shaping ICT, and how ICT organisations are evolving. The aim is to give a plain english summary to allow ICT lawyers to have sensible conversations about ICT to support the work that they do with ICT professionals. In my view ICT may be hard to do, but it is not hard to understand. At the end of each topic I will include my own personal view.

Some BYOD Technology Recommendations

This is the sixteenth post in my series on BYOD. In my last post on the subject I discussed a range of technologies that can be used to solve issues raised by BYOD. Here I’d like to give my broad recommendations around which of those technologies are most likely to solve the kinds of problems that are typically found in organisations that are looking to embrace BYOD.

An Overview of Mobility and BYOD Technology

This is the fifteenth post in my series on BYOD. I have mostly avoided talking about technology, as in many ways that is the least important, and the most straightforward aspect of dealing with BYOD. Most people automatically think of Mobile Device Management (MDM) when they think of mobile or BYOD technology, but that is far from the only viable solution. Here I’ll outline the key technology solutions that are available to help you deliver usable and effective BYOD to your organisation.

Privacy Matters for BYOD

This is my fourteenth post in my series on BYOD. This recent article on Infoworld about how the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs has put its BYOD plans on hold illustrates the point that you need to consider and cover off employee privacy when implementing BYOD.

A Presentation for a Workshop on BYOD Policy

I recently ran a workshop on developing BYOD policies to a group of education sector ICT professionals. It was a great chance to socialise my ideas, thinking and recommendations and get some feedback from people who were actively working on and engaged with this subject. As part of the workshop I decided to organise my thoughts as a presentation, and decided to use Prezi as the way to present my thoughts to the group.

BYOD Is Not About Devices

This is my 11th post on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions. A discussion the other day with Microsoft’s Beat Schwegler (Head of Platform Strategy Group) brought out something that was behind much of my thinking, but I haven’t made explicit: my approach – and my recommended approach – is that BYOD is not actually about devices at all.

Seize the Opportunity and Ride the Wave with BYOD

This is my tenth post on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). I hear lots of bemoaning of BYOD – the old joke about “bring your own disaster” – and how it is just being done to support executive toys. My view: so what?! Implementing BYOD is the right thing to do for most organisations. If you can ride the wave of executive demand and deliver something that improves the security and usability of IT in your organisation…what are you waiting for?! Go do it!
