You absolutely have to enforce all business and security rules on the server 
side.  Insert/update/delete logic, as well as row and field access 
restrictions.  As you have noted, this cannot be accomplished on the client.

You can choose what rules to duplicate on the client to improve performance 
and/or user experience.
