Survey says, protect your mobile devices

In spite of our increased productivity, we’re sloppy when it comes to protecting our notebooks and smart phones, according to a recent global survey by Pointsec Mobile Security.

The survey showed that 1 in 3 mobile devices (notebooks, smartphones, etc) are not protected by a simple password or lock. Coupled with the increasing amount of data being stored on these devices by corporate personnel, well, you do the math.

More and more devices are going missing, along with the valuable information they store. This year, 22% of the people surveyed said they had lost their notebook or smartphone at some point; 81% of those confessed to not encrypting the data stored therein.
