BYOD and Mobile Security: Sneak Peek of LinkedIn Infosec Community Survey
The days in which an organization owned and issued all devices accessing its network are long gone. Employees are now using their personal mobile devices to store and access corporate data, but many organizations do not have policies or security in place to mitigate BYOD risk. We learned in the 2014 State of the Endpoint Survey by Ponemon that 75% of IT professionals saw mobile device protection as the number one challenge for 2014, and 46% admitted they have no security policies in place for mobile devices. Since mobile device security is an increasing priority, Lumension sponsored the second BYOD & Mobile Security Survey with the global LinkedIn Information Security group to hear the community’s views and sentiment on this issue. After surveying over 1,000 respondents, the preliminary results are in, and we want to give a sneak peek to share the findings with you!
