2. More Than Half of Android Devices Run Outdated Browsers

Our Thoughts:

  • When using a personal device in a BYOD program, employees must ensure they have a security PIN/password that is not similar or related to passwords used for personal accounts. 
  • Devices owned by companies should be updated and monitored by IT staff.

Our Thoughts:

 5. UK hackers use customer mobile data to steal their upgrade phones

Our Thoughts:

  • Employees must be trained in how to keep customer information secured.
  • Two factor authentication should be considered as an employee log-in. And that information should not be share to anyone.
