January 2013 FCW.COM 21 THE MOBILE EXPLOSION SECURITY, BYOD CONCERNS MOVE CLOSER TO RESOLUTION The use of mobile devices in the government got a boost in 2012 when the Obama administration made mobility a cen- tral element of the Digital Government Strategy. President Barack Obama s re-election ensured that the push from the top will continue. It is not just a top-down effort, however. The proliferation of mobile devices also has a bottom-up impetus.

Yet they are too crucial to the government s mission and too integral to its success to be put aside. Here, FCW examines some of those critical areas and gauges the prospects for real progress in the year ahead.
