Tip of the Week: Awareness is Key to Mobile Device Security

Remote working has become huge, which includes the use of the wireless mobile device. It is important for a company to keep all of these devices safe so their company can be safe as well. Today we’re going to be discussing some tips that will help you keep them safe.

Awareness

With wireless internet and Bluetooth capabilities, mobile devices can offer so much to the workplace. But, with this comes the worry of hackers using these capabilities to infiltrate your systems. It is important to always know what wireless connections are happening on your device. Free Wi-Fi is great, but you NEED to be sure that the connection is secure before giving it access to your device. This practice will make sure your mobile device is secure.

Another big issue that many people aren’t aware of is the permissions you give applications. Many times the info an app is requesting is unnecessary and will not change the way the application is used. You will want to know what your data is being used for and when, so you can better protect it.

Security

Did you know that your smartphone has security options built into it? Obviously, you can set up a password so that nobody except you can get into it. Most of the time, you can use a passcode, fingerprint, or Face ID to do so, depending on your device. Passcodes can also be set up as numbers, a pattern, or a pin. These security features can protect your device if it is lost or stolen. 

Data security should always be important to your company and should be at the forefront of everything you do. MyTek is here to help your business navigate your security efforts and can help tremendously by giving you insider information about IT. Call us today to learn more at 623-312-2440.
