Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is the age-old security dilemma and it’s addressed through the following steps:

  1. Know what you’ve got
  2. Understand how it’s at risk
  3. Do something about it

Many (most) businesses have no real clue what information is where – especially when it comes to mobile – much less how it’s currently exposed. You cannot possibly secure what you don’t acknowledge so this is as much of a discovery expedition as it a “lock it all down and hope everything’s okay” exercise.
