Many sectors of industry have become increasingly digitised in recent years, placing a greater emphasis on mobile devices and cloud storage.

Despite becoming every bit as "smart" as most personal computers, phones are often overlooked when it comes to cyber security. Yet, because they are always on the move and constantly communicating with different devices and networks, they are some of the most vulnerable devices we use.

This makes them a prime target for cyber criminals, who have many possible lines of attack when it comes to mobile devices. Phishing attacks, which download malware onto smartphones to monitor calls, messages, and many other activities, are particularly common, and these attacks are gradually becoming more dangerous and more difficult to detect.

Our experienced cyber security experts can offer advice on how your business should defend itself against threats to mobile security. See below for a few simple steps which can make a big difference.


Simple Steps

  • Use two factor authentication when available.
  • Disable bluetooth and location services when not needed.
  • Consider revoking critical permissions when apps are not using them.
  • NEVER use a ‘jailbroken‘ or ‘rooted‘ phone - this essentially disables security against third party apps accessing privileged operations.
  • Think before granting apps permission. Does a flashlight really need to know your device’s location?
  • Only install apps from a trusted developer on an official market.
  • Don’t perform financial, medical or business tasks using a smartphone when connected to a public Wi-Fi network.
  • Always apply software upgrades as soon as possible - these often carry security updates.
