If your desktop computers are a security risk then your mobile devices are
at risk too. As the nation’s employers incorporate teleworking (working
offsite) for employees, teleworking presents a higher security risk.
Many organizations have become concerned with the potential loss of
company or customer data. A loss of any kind can be detrimental to the
operation of a business. Lost and stolen devices are also a major issue.
There are consumer concerns as well when it comes to mobile payments,
shopping and banking. Did you know, your mobile device can be hacked
without your knowledge? A hacker can eavesdrop on your passwords, call
histories, emails, & etc. without you experiencing any changes to
your mobile phone.

Around 59 percent of knowledge workers said that the use of smartphones and tablets increases their productivity and 27 percent said that working remotely makes work easier, according to a survey conducted by IDC on behalf of Samsung of knowledge workers.
A majority of knowledge workers said that mobility is important for them to do their jobs, with 13.5 percent noting that it is “mission critical,”
More than one-third of workers said that their biggest challenge at work is not having access to necessary information remotely when they need it.
In addition, working in the cloud has become the norm for 45 percent of knowledge workers, and 36 percent would prefer that their company adopt cloud technologies.
A surprising 22 percent of knowledge workers said that the IT tools at work were worse than those they had at home, 49 percent said that IT tools at work were “okay,” while only 20 percent thought their IT tools at work were “awesome.”
A disturbing 65 percent of knowledge workers said that their company does not have a BYOD policy, with only 22 percent responding that they do have a BYOD policy at work.
This supports other surveys conducted about BYOD policies. According to a survey conducted by IDC on behalf of Samsung, less than one-third of companies had BYOD policies in place.
Not having a BYOD policy in place opens up enterprises to a “security nightmare,”Harry Sverdlove, chief technology officer at security firm Bit9. In a recent blog, Sverdlove said that companies without BYOD policies risk losing control over business data and being the target of attacks that steal data.
Companies that do not have BYOD policies in place are increasing the risks to their data and networks from employees bringing their mobile devices to work, with or without the permission of the IT department.
