Smartphones today are effectively computers in your pocket! They are open to the same vulnerabilities relating to the software they run and the connections they make to the outside world. Keeping corporate data secure on smartphones or other BYO devices is equally as critical as securing your desktop or laptop computer.
Have you ever considered the business tasks your staff carry out on their mobile phone?
- Are they accessing business email from their mobile phone?
- Are they accessing sensitive corporate or customer data via mobile apps?
- Are they using an unsecured public wi-fi network?
- Are they downloading third party apps at risk of malware?
- What happens if a mobile device is lost or stolen and what is the impact of the new GDPR regulation?
