Mobile Security Survey Report 2017

Cybercrime is one of the most significant modern-day threats, with enormous implications for national security, economic prosperity, and public safety. From ransomware to nation-state attacks, the range of threats and challenges they present for law enforcement expand just as rapidly as the technology evolves.

A newly released report by Kony, a leader in mobile space, analyses the cybercrime threat to businesses. The growth in mobile working, which frequently crosses multiple borders and governance regulations, means a single breach can threaten an organisation’s entire digital ecosystem. The victims include third parties such as service providers, business partners, customers, or government authorities.

Key takeaways:

Many companies are using multiple apps and updating these several times each year – multiplying the need for security procedures and processes.
• Almost one-third either don’t or are unsure if they encrypt their apps – potentially putting their apps and data at risk.
• A high proportion of companies aren’t able to consistently protect against security vulnerabilities – leaving gaps that could be exploited.
• Just 10% of respondents rate their mobile apps as ‘very secure’ – findings which should be of great concern within the industry.

“Given the relatively low protection levels across the board, the multipronged attack typical of a cyber-criminal organization will almost always be able to find a vulnerability”
