Securing Your Company’s Mobile Devices

Keep your business’s mobile devices safe.

Due to the convenience they offer, smartphones and tablet devices have become ever-present in the modern business world. As usage soars, it becomes increasingly important to take steps to protect your company from mobile threats, both old and new. Since business mobile devices store everything from employee Social Security Numbers to vendor information to financial details, it’s wise to protect this data from falling into the wrong hands.

Establish a mobile device policy

Before issuing smartphones or tablets to your team, establish a device usage policy. Provide clear rules about what constitutes acceptable use as well as actions that will be taken if the policy is violated. It’s incredibly important that employees understand the security risks inherent to smartphone use.

Back up content regularly

Just like your computer data should be backed up regularly, so should the data on your company’s mobile devices. If a device is lost or stolen, you want to have peace of mind knowing your valuable data is safe.

Choose passwords carefully

Good password hygiene can make all the difference. Make sure employees change their passwords on their mobile devices regularly (at least with the change in seasons). Passwords should be at least eight characters long and include uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Avoid using names of spouses and children in password creation.
