I'm quoted in today's Wall Street Journal in a special section on mobile security (page A20) and thought this subject would make for a good topic of discussion on ITKE.
We hear story after story, breach after breach, and study after study related to sensitive information on mobile devices being compromised but yet the problem is still rampant and seems to be getting worse. Does no one in management truly understand the seriousness of this issue? Or, do IT admins and security managers just not have the time and energy to devote to it?
I think its one of the biggest information security problems we face right now...I've written extensively about the vulnerabilities associated with data at rest
and have especially ranted about sensitive information on unprotected mobile devices
. But I feel alone.
What do you all think? Are you coming across the same issue? If so, what solutions are you seeing and/or recommending?
