Mobile IT workers taking risks online RRS feed

  • Question

  •                             Mobile workers are taking unnecessary risks when it comes to the data on their devices and the networks to which they connect, according to a new study.

                                 The SurfControl Trust & Risk Study, conducted by Dr Monica Whitty from Queens University Belfast, reveals the risky behaviour of many employees, particularly mobile workers.

                                 The study surveyed over 1,000 mobile and desktop employees across five countries and found that mobile laptop users took more risks than their deskbound colleagues across all activities surveyed.
