As mobile technology becomes global, bring your own device (BYOD) is becoming more popular in state government. Lisa Feldner, Chief Information Officer for North Dakota’s Information Technology Department (ITD) was featured in a STATETECH article titled, “The State of BYOD in Local Government: 3 CIOs Speak Out.” Lisa discussed the aspects and challenges of BYOD to work. “They don’t want to carry a work phone and a personal phone, and so that’s where the policy really came forward,” Feldner said. “If you want to carry your personal device, the state won’t buy one for you, but we’ll reimburse you for that data."
"I think that the mobile devices are changing government," Feldner said.
