Mobile Security and Responsibility
Taking the right attitude to secure mobile technology
Workplace flexibility is at least as important a driver for mobility as productivity;
While efficiency and productivity are clearly important justifications for adopting new technology, workplace flexibility is the top reason for interest in mobile technology for three quarters of IT professionals. However, those companies that deploy the technology most widely are those with a corporate strategy for mobile working.
Mobile security policies are described as ‘vital’ but largely not well implemented;
While the vast majority of IT professionals believe it is vital for security policies to cover the use of mobile, wireless or cellular devices, a third do not have such a policy in place. Although this is less for those with more widespread deployment, still one in five of those companies with broad deployments of both wireless laptops and smart handheld devices do not have effective policies in place for mobile security.
