Mobile Security Oversight.
Mobile security has been growing and evolving in the past several years as mobile devices find their way into the work place.
Mobile Security Oversight: The Issues
Without a doubt, managing security on the vast number and types of mobile devices is a huge security challenge facing any organization. In fact, an article by CSO Online stated that security professionals should consider mobile to be the new endpoint.
Android devices and jail-broken iOS devices are the most vulnerable to a threat. TMCP estimate that in 2016 alone they saw an 1800% increase in Android malware.
Over the past several years, there have been dozens upon dozens of reports, articles, research papers, and blogs that discuss the security weaknesses of mobile devices. Just to name a few, the list generally includes:
Lack of passwords
Non-encrypted wireless transmissions
Physical Device theft or loss
These are just a few of the dozens of mobile security concerns facing IT departments today. So, with the existence of these security vulnerabilities being so widely understood, how is it that Mobile Security Negligence is one of the 7 Deadly IT Sins that organizations face today?
Easy – controlling this wide range of devices is extremely complicated. For one thing, these devices are almost always employee-owned. That fact alone poses huge challenges as it becomes difficult for organizations to enforce certain behavior to protect company data. Adding to this complexity is the fact that most of these devices are typically viewed and managed separately. This adds risk to the mobile device management process.
Still, mobile security negligence is causing increasing numbers of data loss, security breaches, and regulatory compliance violations. So, how can companies get around these difficulties and challenges to avoid mobile security negligence?
