Why should I care about mobile security?
The most critical aspect of mobile security is ensuring confidential data is safeguarded. With the increased use and capabilities of smartphones and powerful mobile devices, more and more confidential data is beginning to make its way toward your user’s phones. Attackers will often aim for these devices first because they present an easy target. Security is not at the forefront of these devices and the payout from attacking them is often large. Have you provided your executives with smartphones? Do they check their confidential, corporate email on it? Do they secure their phones with a password? Do you have a good IT Security policy framework to centrally manage these phones? What do you do if a phone is lost, stolen or compromised? These are all questions that you need to ask when you have a workforce that relies on mobile phones.
