If your organisation has a lot of mobile business lines, everyone using one has to fully appreciate the importance of mobile phone security, and of protecting company information which is stored on business mobiles. Bear in mind that this information is actually far more valuable to your business than the phones themselves, so focus on protecting it rather than the devices. Makes sure all data stored on company mobiles is encrypted.

Also make sure your employees understand the importance of keeping security software up to date on their mobile phones, just as they would on a computer. This protects company devices from the latest kinds of malware and viruses which can threaten a business's critical data.

As well as encryption and security updates, it is also essential to enforce password management for everyone using mobile business lines. The use of strong passwords will help protect the data stored in the phone if a device is lost or hacked.

Remember that a phone's Bluetooth is the default setting, so it will have to be switched off or coupled with the device and configured with the headset. Otherwise, the device will look for other Bluetooth-enabled phones to connect to, and could mean malware is uploaded. Following these tips will help to control the threat of cybercrime, while minimising the chances of losing vital customer information.
