The BYOD issue will get even more intense as Cisco, Polycom, Zoom, consultants and end users debate the merits and issues surrounding the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) topic on March 28 at 1:00 PM EDT. The Visual Communications Industry Group will host this session that will explore the impact of BYOD on organizations' communications and collaboration strategies. The session will explore the technical and user issues, challenges and risks. This session is produced by the VCI-Group Education Committee and will be a live videoconferencing interactive and streaming event. Registration is free to VCI-Group members and guests http://www.vci-group.org/events/vciglivereg.aspx.

This VCI-G Live! Event will include industry experts Donald Gunn, Program Manager for Content Collaboration Mobility services-Cisco; Nick Chong, Head of Product Marketing-Zoom, and Elaine Shuck, Program Director Solution Marketing Education-Polycom. Joining Polycom, Cisco and Zoom, will be consultant Andy Howard, Founder and Managing Director of Howard and Associates, and end user Vic Tiamsic, UC Architect North Shore-LIJ Health Systems. The session will be moderated by industry veteran JD Vaughn and will explore questions like: "What security issues should I be concerned about with BYOD? How will it impact my network? What devices should I allow in my environment and which ones should I block? How does BYOD fit into my UC strategy? And how can I effectively Manage BYOD behavior in my organization?"

"This will be an important session for IT and videoconferencing managers everywhere", said J D Vaughn, 20 year industry veteran and host for the Monthly VCI-G Live! events. "We are told that videoconferencing endpoints will grow to 20 odd billion over the next seven years. Our user members know that with growth and access come more risks and challenges. VCI-G is here to help our users explore, understand and mitigate the risks and challenges brought by BYOD."
