Just very quickly, pick up your mobile phone and take a second to consider what it contains:
- Confidential work emails?
- Colleagues’ and friends’ addresses and contact details?
- Access to your social networks? (Probably bypassing a password?)
- A calendar showing when you’re away from home?
- Photographs of you and your family from the weekend?
Now imagine if that information were in a paper format – a comprehensive print-out of your life.
Now imagine having that stolen.
Each year, 250,000 – 300,000 mobile phones are reported as stolen in the UK, many of them smart phones containing huge amounts of personal information.
In his second green paper on the subject of mobile device security, IT Governance CEO Alan Calder offers vital advice on securing your mobile phones and tablets.
Using the latest guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the UK’s National Mobile Phone Crime Unit, this paper offers measures you can take to prevent your information from falling into the wrong hands.
