No one can argue that the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement is changing the way workers undertake business activities. Most employees nowadays are tethered to a mobile device of some sort that leaves them checking email or communicating with someone for work at any given hour of any given day. This always-on mentality, then, certainly should be informing how executives ensure that their companies’ risk management and security plans are updated and managed. However, most organizations are still trying to get their hands around just how employees are using mobile devices and for what tasks, according to a recent SC Magazine survey that saw participation from 220 readers. The survey, which was sponsored by Marble Security, found that only 125 respondents, so 57 percent, know how many of their employees rely on smartphones and tablets to do their day-to-day jobs. Another 18 percent just aren’t sure and 13 percent are working this question out now. During this online event, we’ll hear more about where readers stand with mobile security measures and hear from experts on just how organizations can get a clearer idea on how their staff are using mobile devices and what information security officers must do to ensure that the access and storage capabilities that these devices allow won’t compromise sensitive data – and, ultimately, the company’s brand and bottom line.
