On a sunny day, everyone knows that they should put on sunscreen, but that doesn't mean they do it. Users follow the same mindset when it comes to mobile data protection.
Cyberattacks can beat down on mobile data like UV rays. Most companies will apply one layer of defense and often forget to set automatic security updates, leaving their corporate data open to attacks, vulnerabilities and other forms of data loss or leakage. IT has to make sure some common mobile data protection best practices are in place.
All companies should have basic security coverage, such as protecting mobile data with backup and using encryption. From there, IT can move to more advanced methods, such as implementing enterprise mobility management tools and containers -- isolated systems that apply security policies to keep corporate data separate from personal -- to protect information on mobile devices.
