As the consumerization of IT continues to disrupt the workforce, individuals are able to access mission-critical documents from virtually anywhere at any time. This means that any number of vulnerabilities could be exposed when employees work outside the boundaries of their traditional data center.
A separate report by InformationWeek said decision-makers today need to develop a robust mobile security program that incorporates how individuals use sensitive resources on their smartphones or tablets. If executives fail to include an access control policy for their overall document security plans, the company will likely fall victim to unnecessary exposure.
