Without a dedicated workstation, we rely on mobile devices (e.g. smart phones, laptops, tablets). What should you be aware of?
Today mobile device use is only increasing versus a dedicated workstation. We have come to rely on mobile smart phones, laptops, and tablets when working remotely. Did you know that research has shown that the average American spends more than 5 hours a day on their phone for personal and professional use and checks it on an average of 58x per day. Sometimes upwards of 80x per day or every 12 minutes. That’s over 35 hours a week devoted to staring at and using that tiny screen. That’s not including time spent in front of a laptop or TV.
No other invention or device in history has influenced our current behavior patterns than the mobile device. No wonder threat actors are constantly working hard to tap into our mobile device use habits.
Now more than ever we need to be cyber aware and safe! Especially given the amount of time we use our mobile devices and especially if those devices are used in a professional manner.
