    Threats, Vulnerabilities And Potential Risks

    Mobile workers have been in our midst for years. In the past, working from home involved a personal computer that was located in one room with a modem or ISDN connection at best. The changes to the model are incredible. Mobile workers now work in an office without walls. Mobile workers can be around the world, relaxing on a beach, submitting work from a coffee shop, accessing organizational infrastructure from the ski slopes or downloading sensitive documents from 38,000 feet in the sky.

    The opportunities for mistakes that lead to data loss have grown exponentially. The office without walls, coupled with the vast consumerisation of devices that can now access the organizational infrastructure without actually being issued by the company, has become a troublesome recipe for carelessness and data exposure. Tablets and smart phones were not designed with security in mind, but rather to please the user. It’s now more important than ever that companies ensure their mobile workforce is secure, no matter what device they choose.

    The key to the implementation of any security and privacy program rests with education. Companies must educate their mobile workers on the security controls required for all devices. Training programs that help show them how to maintain the privacy of their information and the information of the organisation, need to be set-up and regularly updated. Additionally, employees need to be periodically reminded of the controls, threats and vulnerabilities of their devices and the potential risks all mobile workers face while working remotely. If employees are properly educated, the need for additional and more costly security can be avoided.
