The pervasiveness of mobile devices has forced many organizations to support connectivity of corporate and private devices. Corporate devices are highly configurable regarding authentication, encryption, and remote wiping. BlackBerry devices can be fully deployed and managed using a centralized Blackberry Enterprise Server, however when a user owned device connects to enterprise servers, data security becomes a concern. Introduce a litany of complex legislative rulings and laws concerning protected data across various business domains and now personal mobile devices become security risks. This paper will discuss current issues in securing personal mobile devices in the healthcare environment and present possible solutions.
