Mobile devices pose huge data risks

85,000 cellphones and 21,000 PDAs were left in Chicago taxis in 6 months last year! Thanks to Ray Symmes for pointing out an article in the New York Times (Feb 21), Too Many New Gadgets, Too Much Information at Risk, which suggests that companies do not realise the security risk they are running by equipping their workforces with high-data storage mobile devices in terms of wifi evesdropping, theft and loss.

More forward thinking companies such as Seitlin, a small insurance brokerage based in Miami are making sure that if the gadget is lost the data is not.

This also addresses a problem which the NYT report does not mention – when your sales staff leave you don’t want them taking all your customer account data to your competitor!
