II am curious today and willing to know more about the risks that mobile phones represent for organizations. Mobile device utilization for corporate work is increasing with pandemics. Still, only 60% use mobile security solutions, according to ZIMPERIUM.
🤓 @ JR Raphael offers in CSO an excellent summary of 8 areas of security risk to address in mobile devices:
📌 Social engineering. Users are three times more likely to respond to a phishing attack on a mobile device.
📌 Data leakage. Users use to download or share data from apps they use on mobility.
📌 WiFi interference, with typical man-in-the-middle attacks
📌 Out-of-Date devices, not having installed the latest security patches.
📌 Poor password hygiene: Weak or old passwords that haven't been changed in a long time
📌. Mobile Ad Fraud: malware installed in the phone to generate false clicks on adds
📌 Physical device breaches: A device lost or stolen containing sensitive data.
You are welcome to mention in the comments other mobile security threats not included here.
