Users have little confidence their company can protect their mobile device
A survey sponsored by Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. found that 64 percent of respondents are doubtful that their organization can prevent a mobile cyberattack, leaving employees’ personal information vulnerable to theft.
Alvaro Hoyos, chief information security officer at OneLogin, said that number does not surprise him. He said the employees might not know the ins and outs of their company’s security controls. IT departments typically don’t go out of the way to communicate all the security controls that they are relying on to secure your IT environment.
He said companies should use their security awareness training to help users understand what risks you their employers are addressing with technology.
