“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Remember to Include Your Phone in Your Cyber Security Planning

Our phones are a treasure trove of personal information, from financial details to personal messages, photos, and contact information. All that information lives behind the little glass screen in the palm of your hand. And if your team uses phones for work, they probably have access to sensitive company systems like email, contact lists, and network access. This makes them a weak point in your cyber security if not kept secure.

Criminals are well aware of this, and they target our phones just as much as they do our networks and servers. But it’s not just cybercrime that you need to worry about, even just losing your phone or having your phone stolen can put your data at risk.

Whether you issue company phones or your employees use their own, it's important to take some simple security measures to protect your data and avoid disaster.

Start by setting up a PIN and biometric login, like a fingerprint or face scan, to access the device. Only install apps from trusted sources to ensure you're using genuine software and enable Multi-Factor Authentication on all apps that store even a small amount of sensitive data. And ALWAYS make sure your phone is running the latest version of its operating software.

Be careful about where you connect to Wi-Fi. If you work remotely or often connect to public networks, consider using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) Secure Access Service Edge to add an extra layer of security. This is because you never know who could be monitoring traffic on a public network.

Smartphones have transformed how we live, both at work and at home, but it’s too easy to take them for granted. And that could be a costly mistake.

If you have questions or need advice on how to keep your mobile devices more secure just get in touch!

Until next time, keep fit and have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

Our phones contain our entire personal information and yada yada yada don’t forget about keeping your phone secure from cybercrime.
