Mobile Device Security Information for CIOs/CSOs
In today's business environment, managing and controlling access to data is critical to long-term business viability and survivability. Mobile devices - such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), advanced and 'Smart' mobile phones, and traditional laptops - are no longer the preserve only of technology 'Early adopters'. They are critical tools that provide competitive advantages for the mobile workforce and individual users, by enabling access to corporate data by users 'On the move'. Accordingly, mobile devices are increasingly integrated into corporate networks and systems, including those that underpin critical infrastructures. As mobile devices can move freely in and out of an organisation's controlled security environment, they pose additional risks to the information and systems.
