The Importance of Information and Cyber Security Training:

Advances in technology have meant that more and more mobile devices are in use for business. Mobile devices, however, are accompanied by their own set of risks. Mobile devices compromised due to loss, theft or damage can result in major threats to information security for organisations. Training your employees on how to use mobile devices securely is vital for preventing risks to information security and keeping business information secure.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

To secure mobile devices, users must set a lock screen and ensure the screen to lock automatically after a period of time. Using a PIN, strong password and biometric login to unlock the device is also recommended. Passwords and PIN must be hard to guess and should be periodically updated in line with organisational IT security policy.

Ensuring that you use your organisation’s secure network or your home secure network to access the internet or VPN on a mobile device is vital for preventing unauthorised access and information breaches. Never connect to an unsecured or public WIFI network or use a physical (ethernet) connection to an unsecured network.

Care must be taken when transporting mobile devices out of the office as they may be lost or stolen. Mobile devices should be kept on you whilst travelling and extra care should be taken when using them to mitigate the risk of theft. If sensitive information is stored on mobile devices, make sure it is encrypted. If any work devices are lost or stolen, report it to your IT department immediately.
