After reading this I wonder how many of us could get hacked on our mobile:
Sixty-four percent of security professionals doubt their organizations can prevent a breach to employees’ mobile devices, a recent Dimensional Research survey [PDF] of 410 security leaders found. The survey, sponsored by Check Point Software, also found that 20 percent of businesses have experienced a mobile breach, and another 24 percent don’t know, or can’t tell, whether they’ve experienced one.
Strikingly, 51 percent of respondents believe the risk of mobile data loss is equal to or greater than that for PCs.
Perhaps the high level of concern is based on the frequency of mobile device loss or theft, as well as the limited security measures companies use to protect enterprise mobile devices, the report states.
More than a third of companies fail to secure mobile devices adequately, with only 38 percent leveraging a dedicated mobile security solution.
When asked why, 53 percent of respondents cited a lack of budget, and 41 percent cited a shortage of resources.
Ninety-four percent of respondents expect the frequency of mobile attacks to increase, and 79 percent expect the difficulty of securing mobile devices to grow.
