Mobile security breaches are still affecting 41 per cent of UK organisations in the last twelve months.
According to a new study from BT, UK businesses are still not taking sufficient security measures to protect themselves against mobile threats, such as lost or stolen devices and malware infections. The report revealed that at least one fifth of respondents’ organisations that suffered a mobile security breach, or experienced more than four incidents in the last year.
It found that just over a third (35 per cent) of UK organisations actively had a BYOD policy, while only 15 per cent of respondents felt that their company had sufficient resources in place to prevent a mobile security breach. Meanwhile, 55 per cent reported that their organisation has IT security training for all.
While 33 per cent of personal or corporate owned mobile devices have full access to the internal networks or contain sensitive client information, a third of organisations (34 per cent) do not have any kind of enforceable mobile security policy.
