man typing on tablet and phoneTablets, smartphones and other mobile devices have made it easier for people to work wherever they are, whether snowed in at home or on a business trip. But with the growing popularity of mobile technology comes the need to ensure the security of your business’ data.

Your employees may use mobile devices to schedule meetings, track billable time, stay in touch with the main office, accept payment, give presentations or demonstrate new products. No matter why your employees use these devices for work, it’s up to you to train them to safeguard company data. Use these tips to get started.
  • Back up data: All company data should be regularly backed up, which helps keep it safe if a mobile device is damaged or stolen. Many devices are able to back up data to online cloud storage.

  • Set up a virtual private network: Commonly called a VPN, a virtual private network provides a secure connection back to the office so employees on the go can access company files without storing them on the mobile device.

  • Enforce password use: Simply using a password to log onto a work device is an easy and effective way of protecting information.

  • Encrypt sensitive data: Encrypting files and email communications adds another layer of protection. In fact, many mobile devices come pre-loaded with an encryption feature.

  • Enable remote lock and wipe features: The ability to lock devices and wipe data remotely is an effective protective measure if devices are lost or stolen.

  • Stay sharp: Apart from high-tech solutions to security, simply being vigilant goes a long way. Train your employees to keep a close eye on mobile devices, to record serial numbers and to report any damages or losses immediately.
