IT professionals still not protecting mobile devices

(Hannah Douglas, ITPro) In a time of threats to corporate data and costly breaches, companies aren’t doing enough to protect sensitive information, according to research.

According to a newly released report, sponsored by a data protection and management group, 52% of the nearly 300 IT security professionals surveyed do not encrypt the data on USB drives they use to carry company data.

The type of unprotected data reported by respondents was not insignificant, with 67% intellectual property, 40% customer data and 26%  employee details. Incidents of lost or stolen devices were also mentioned in the study, which said that 11% of the sample had experienced a breach recently.
