If you were just getting comfortable with BYOD, brace yourself for new twists and turns. CIOs can expect more devices to enter the enterprise in consumer clothing, real security threats to emerge, new MDM options and much more in 2014.

Tech leaders made big strides, and IT saved itself from becoming irrelevant. However, there is still a lot of work to be done with BYOD security and policy. Many companies have gaping BYOD security risks. This year, we'll see IT shoring up networks and systems to make them BYOD-proof.
