Ponemon Global Study on Mobility Risks
Mobile devices have been a blessing and a curse for both employees and organizations. They give users the flexibility to manage their own schedules but at the costs of always finding themselves working. And while organizations gain huge productivity benefits, mobile devices pose as one of the most serious threat vectors. The proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace is only progressing so it’s important to be prepared to mitigate risks.
To help organizations plan for an increased mobile workforce, Websense, Inc. and Ponemon Institute created the Global Study on Mobility Risks, surveying 4,640 IT professionals around the world, examining four (4) major issues:
- Importance of mobile devices in reaching business goals
- Existence of enforceable policies that govern the use of mobile devices
- Security risks created by employee mobile devices
- Security technologies that reduce or mitigate mobility risks
