It's Time to Change the Approach to Business Smartphones

An organization's security is as strong as its weakest link, so viewing business smartphones purely as an employee benefit can expose a company or institution to infiltration and severe losses. At the latest, it's time to change the approach to business smartphones. Careful selection of devices and cyber security training will avoid most risks.
Digitalisation trends and the post-pandemic reality of the labour market mean that for many people, the smartphone is now at least as important a work tool as the computer.
While programs related to the protection of workstations have been implemented and prioritised in companies and institutions for years, the mobile security issue is often relegated to the background. Meanwhile, the potential implications of stolen or leaked smartphone data are no less threatening than those associated with attacks on corporate computers.
