In the age of BYOD, organizations who aren't taking the proper security precautions, including passcode, application, and encryption policies, are leaving themselves vulnerable to cybercrimes.
With sensitive information being passed back and forth between mobile devices, today’s banking and financial institutions must be prepared for the worst. Use this how-to guide to gauge your preparedness for data leak risks and regulatory compliance.
In the mobile age, having a data protection plan has become essential. How will your organization protect sensitive data and avoid security breaches in the new year?
At yesterday's MORE series webinar, we took a dive into the hottest topic in enterprise mobility: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs. Whether your IT team has begun putting a BYOD plan into practice — or is looking to start from scratch — we've got you covered.
Tablets and smartphones have become very popular among health practitioners and have redefined the doctor-patient relationship. While universities and hospitals are allocating budgets for developing medical applications for the iPads and iPhones, doctors and nurses are using them to keep track of patient records, discuss medical cases in online forums, view clinical data and issue prescriptions. The mobile technology has influenced the medical industry remarkably.
Smartphones, tablets, and notebooks--more recently ultrabooks--have enriched the mobility space and made it more complex. The influence of these mobile devices can be experienced everywhere: airports, shopping complexes, hospitals, museums, schools, colleges and also our workplaces. They've erased corporate boundaries but at the same time, they've raised many data security concerns.
Employees are bringing devices to work in ever-increasing numbers. Gone are the days of IT handing out devices with just the company-approved software. Now more and more users want to use the devices they own and like, and these devices do double-duty for work and home.
What are you using to get the job done today? Whatever it is, chances are you'd be reluctant to go back to a typewriter and briefcase packed with handwritten contents. Tablets, smartphones, desktops and laptops are here to stay. They've worked their way into our routine in so many ways that it makes it difficult to grasp the hard truth. That being, the more ways we use these devices the more risk they present us. An overwhelming number of organizations have overlooked this risk... but why? Perhaps the edge these devices provide us is the very thing that blinds us. The worst part is, the stakes have never been higher.
