You know those fresh-faced, young hires in your office? More than their eager minds and new perspectives, they also bring a higher security risk. Generation Y, also known as Millennials, grew up in a mobile and app-driven society with different expectations of how mobile technology should be used in the workplace--including not being in the workplace at all. We call it coffee shop IT, and it creates challenges for IT departments to secure access to company systems.
By 2020, Millennials will make up nearly half of the U.S. workforce.

Organizations need to adapt their IT security plans to accommodate their mobile expectations.
