Mobile Security research
When BT asked 640 major organisations around the world about their attitudes to mobile device security, the results were revealing.
Use of personal mobile devices at work is very high, even though these devices represent a significant security risk to organisations. Despite the real threat of a mobile security breach, many businesses are failing to make adequate provisions to protect their valuable data – and it’s costing them greatly.
Why IT decision makers are worried
On average, organisations told the BT survey that the most significant mobile security breach cost organisations £28,000 and around one quarter (27 per cent) said that their most significant mobile security breach cost them over £30,000.
Yet only around two fifths (42 per cent) of surveyed IT decision makers think their CEO has an in-depth understanding of the security risks posed by mobile devices. Even fewer (31 per cent) believe that the CEO takes the threat of mobile security very seriously.
