Mobile security on the minds of many business owners


Recent research conducted by Boston Research Group shows mobile device management and mobile security are some of the top concerns for IT security professionals across the United States.

The study elicited responses from more than 300 North American IT security professionals, and found 26 percent fear data loss, 23 percent are concerned with malware and 14 percent cited worry about unauthorized users and devices.

"Device mobility, wireless access, personal applications and the high risk of lost or stolen handhelds creates a need for added defenses against data loss, unauthorized access and malware," said Paul McClanahan, research analyst and partner at BRG. "The study also showed that IT security teams are well involved in MDM purchase and implementation decisions."

With IT security teams worried about security threats such as malware and cybercrime, businesses would be smart to invest in a professional liability insurance policy, which can provide crucial cyberliability coverage.

According to the Nation, preventing malware has changed since cybercriminals are adopting new ways to infiltrate data for several businesses. When assessing security, business owners should consider collaborating with other business and assessing their organization's threat landscape.
