Data managers are facing one of their most challenging periods ever as they are faced with rapidly improving technology and an explosion of data to deal with.
However, one of the hottest topics in data management at the moment is the emergence and popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) schemes.
Neil Lathwood, technical director at UKFast.co.uk, said that some 95 per cent of businesses will already have some kind of BYOD scheme even if they made no steps to introduce one.
He said it is vital that firms address their BYOD strategy as soon as possible as "whether they realise it or not, employees are already ahead of the curve".
As well as the obvious concerns over security, firms also need to think about how they will manage data erasure should an employee leave.
Accessing corporate information through a personal device means they may well have data stored on their mobile phone or tablet that it is unwise for them to hang on to when they leave.
Mr Lathwood suggested that firms consider virtual desktops and other capabilities, as well as introducing certain policies, to limit there security and long term risks.
