Mobile phones, the hidden security danger.


One of the biggest security threats to you and your business could be in your hands at this very moment. Mobile phones are a threat to data security for several reasons.

  • They are always connected to the internet. This means that they are constantly exposed to potential threats, such as malware and phishing attacks.
  • Phones are often used in public places. This makes them more vulnerable to theft and loss, which can lead to the exposure of sensitive data.
  • They are often used to store sensitive data. This includes things like passwords, credit card numbers, and personal identification numbers (PINs).
  • They are often not properly secured. This means that they may be running outdated software or they may not have strong passwords.

As a result of these factors, mobile phones are a major target for cybercriminals. In 2021, mobile malware attacks increased by 50%, and mobile phishing attacks increased by 35%.
