Business Security and Protecting Your Mobile Company Assets Considered


Let's face it, all these new mobile tech devices are here to stay, and they will be used in business. So, if you want your business to stay on the leading edge to compete, then you cannot fight it any longer. Unfortunately, there are inherent risks because these little devices have a way of disappearing, and soon may become big targets of hacking networks wishing to get your customer's data, or access your servers, email system, or worse.

In the USA Today on June 1, 2011 there was an interesting article titled "Mobile Devices Pose Big Risks for Security - New Gear Outpaces Company Safeguards" by Byron Acohido. In the article Byron notes that if an eBook Reader has all your company's manuals and internal documents on it, and it is stolen, all that information is now out there, and it might easily fall into the wrong hands, or worse someone might sell it or post it all online somewhere?

Also, if an employee loses their smartphone, iPad, iPhone, or tablet whoever gets a hold of the thief could easily end up with access codes into the servers at the corporation or into the emailing program. This could be a huge breach in security. There might even be passwords, schedules and information for someone to break in, or a RFID enabled pass code to get into secured areas.

The article also discussed how some hackers and cyber bad guys have posted tainted apps at the various app stores, which have "malicious software" (malware) that could really cause a huge problem for your employee and your company. Not just corporations, but governments, military, non-profits, academia, and you name it, it's a huge issue now. Not enough is being done in this day and age of mobile tech, and these small devices, all with different operating software, and types of software security make it tough on a corporations IT security team.

And consider this, if you run a small business, you don't even have an IT security person, so, how safe is your data, your customer's data, and your employee's information really? Not very say many cyber security experts. If you don't have a plan, and the reality is most companies don't then you are taking serious risks, and you need to shore up those potential challenges prior to something happening. Indeed, it's time to seriously look at this and admit you need to do something about it, that's the first step. I surely hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
