Channel Chat: Can there be true White House mobile device security?

Former White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin discusses mobile device security issues in this podcast, including what it takes to secure the so-called "ObamaBerry."

President Barack Obama may have won the battle to keep his PDA, but White House mobile device security issues still abound. In this edition of Channel Chat, George W. Bush's former White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin explores White House mobile device security issues, including whether the so-called "ObamaBerry" can really be secure as the nation's first PDA-in-chief.

Hagin also explains how PDAs made their way into the White House after 9-11, why President Bush refrained from using one, and just whether it's possible to truly ensure White House mobile device security for all of the presidential senior staff as well as the president.
