IT Governance Ltd, the leading expert in IT governance, risk and compliance issues, has released two green paper briefings on mobile device security.
The papers – the first covering laptops and mobile storage devices, the second specifically mobile phones and tablets – provide up-to-date, expert guidance on keeping sensitive information secure from theft.
Each year in the UK alone, over 250,000 mobile phones are reported stolen. Many of these are smart phones containing vast amounts of confidential information about the owner’s home and work life.
In 2012, 31% of data breaches from UK organisations were the result of lost or stolen laptops or mobile storage devices.
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.
