Survey Confirms BYOD Continues to Present Serious Threat
47% of Mobile Device Users have screen lock disabled!
Persisting Threat of BYOD and Mobile Devices
Just when you think progress is being made in educating employees about BYOD security vulnerabilities, another survey releases results like this: In a 400 person survey of office workers, 47% said they do not use a password on their mobile phone. This becomes all the more concerning when it is coupled with the fact that 84% of this group uses their phone for both work and personal matters. Worse still, 36% admitted to reusing the same password multiple times. It seems there is still quite a ways to go before the risks that come with BYOD become a thing of the past. The article exudes that many companies are still not adopting policies and procedures such as those presented in our Mobile Device Security Kit.
