Businesses looking to mobile computing in anticipation of natural disasters

Published:

Severe weather patterns often ravage portions of the United States throughout the summer months, and to protect themselves from these disasters, business owners are looking to mobile security services to protect their sensitive information.

According to a recent survey by AT&T, 86 percent of respondents have a business continuity plan in place in the event of a disaster. Many of these plans involve mobile computing, so companies have also taken steps to secure their mobile networks - 60 percent of respondents have already made investments in mobile security services, and 69 percent believe security breaches of their IT infrastructure is their biggest concern.

"There's certainly no shortage of potential threats or disasters around the world and it's evident that executives are taking the necessary measures to ensure their business continuity plans are in place and actionable," said Chris Costello, assistant vice president of offer management for AT&T's cloud services.

Businesses are being proactive in their approach to security, with 88 percent of respondents saying their businesses are looking at ways to secure their IT infrastructure, while 65 percent plan to invest in new telecommunications technologies to support their IT infrastructures.

Natural disasters can happen to any business at any time, which is why they need a plan to address these problems, as well as cyber liability insurance in case sensitive information is lost or stolen.
