The mobile threat landscape is front of mind for organisations in 2020 and even more so with the shift to remote working due to Covid-19.
The fall-out from a cyber-attack can be disastrous, both personally for employees and also for the company, especially if the personal data of customers is compromised. A cyber breach will erode public trust and damage corporate reputation. It can also be extremely expensive.
And there is no hiding from security breaches. Since the Mandatory Data Breach Notification Scheme came into effect in Australia, in February 2018, penalties for failing to report breaches are severe.
Mobile-targeted threat is growing
Cyber-attacks are usually thought of as targeting networks, but the mobile threat landscape is a fast growing risk. In fact mobile phishing attacks increased by 350% in March 2020 as hackers targeted employees working from home.
With more web traffic now taking place on mobile than desktop, scammers are taking note by hitting victims with regular device-centric scams that leverage SMS and popular apps like WhatsApp.
Many organisations have embraced BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies with unsecured devices reaching deep into corporate servers and sensitive databases. Attackers have found new ways to trick end users into actions which have allowed malicious infiltration and theft of highly confidential identity data.
Mobile security solutions provide protection by preventing, detecting and remediating attacks.
