With the strategies outlined in this recently published guide, companies can take meaningful steps to safeguard sensitive data and operations. By putting proactive policies in place and enhancing employee awareness, businesses can strengthen their security across mobile devices. Rather than reacting to threats, they can get ahead of emerging risks, creating a more resilient defense, More Cybersecurity says.
According to recent research from Malwarebytes, 18% of all clicked phishing emails in 2022 originated from a mobile device. Further to this, they found that 46% of businesses experiencing a mobile security breach reported that app vulnerabilities were a contributing factor. As more employees use mobile devices to access company data, businesses are increasingly exposed to threats.
The guide recommends several security best practices, including using biometric identification like fingerprint or facial recognition when available. Keeping mobile operating systems and apps updated is also critical to patch vulnerabilities quickly, and reliable anti-virus software is a must to detect and remove malware.
Conducting regular mobile device audits and risk assessments allows companies to identify any unaddressed threats, the guide explains. Removing unnecessary apps, encrypting sensitive data, and requiring strong passcodes are also advised.
Other tips covered by More Cybersecurity include implementing two-factor authentication and avoiding public Wi-Fi networks which can expose mobile devices to eavesdropping. Policies should also prohibit unauthorized app downloads.
The guide was written by Scott Hall, a cybersecurity expert who contributes regularly to More Cybersecurity. He provides practical strategies that businesses of any size and industry can implement for stronger mobile security.
He states: "With cybercriminals becoming more sophisticated by the day, it is crucial that you take proactive measures to defend against their attacks. Implementing strong passwords and utilizing encryption can help to protect you. Regularly updating software and educating your employees on best practices can also create a secure environment."
