Charities are being reminded of the need for secure mobile working policies after new research highlighted how organisations are failing to protect data properly.
The study, conducted by Vanson Bourne and commissioned by hardware-encrypted USB drive specialist Apricorn, found that 29% of surveyed organisations have already experienced either a data loss or breach as a direct result of mobile working.
A significant proportion – as many as 44% – expect that mobile workers will expose their organisation to the risk of a data breach.
The findings of the study have been compiled in a handy infographic, which can be found below.
