Gamification proves powerful weapon against security lesson boredom

Not all aspects of dealing with technology are fun. But sometimes technology itself can pep things up. This week, the SearchCIO.com Searchlight shines upon a few examples of the innovative thinking that keeps IT fresh. For example, did you know that refreshing your security policy knowledge could  be kinda fun? Well, with the gamification of HIPPA training, at least it’s a lot less boring. Also this week, if you weren’t particularly impressed by the Apple iPhone 5 announcement, perhaps you’ve just become too cynical to recognize something magical when you see it. Maybe Louis CK was right.

Remember this? Still unimpressed by the iPhone 5?

seems there are too many unknowns right now to allow this in a BYOD scenario.

The integration of teh Facebook Android App with the functionality of the Android operating system and data stores makes for a monumentally insecure corporate data environment. Trusting end users to make sure that sensitive data and personal whimsy are completely serperate cannot be monitored in any way which guarantees privacy and security are uphelp.

It a no from me for BYOD.

It's tough to know what any company will do with data. Obviously money drives motives and that can prove dangerous. So I'm watching closely how companies use my data.

As it is, I use Facebook very little. My primary communication avenue is Outlook and it is quite satisfactory. My main objection to Facebook is that it is far too intrusive, ad is essentially worthless.

I've known of companies to encapsulate their data within an App on the device. This seems more secure.

The motives and focus of FB is contrary to the contractual requirements of most employees.

A lot of unknowns

Organizational data cannot be made public in whatever format/platform it be.

in this information age, information has to be secured and guarded at all times. i don't think Facebook can guarantee this security.

Looking at the response rates now, it seems like Pacman is eating the faint support and uncertainty about FB and android in corporate environment.
