Your Smartphone & Your Cyber Liability Risk

How To Minimize Your Cyber Liability Risk

In the digital age, our smartphones make everything easier. They also expose us to risk, though. As more and more digital data is stored on our mobile devices, it is becoming more and more important for business owners to think about minimizing their cyber liability risk. Here are a few ways to safeguard your smartphone.

  • Lock It Down: Do not make it easy for a thief to pick up your phone and gain instant access to all of the data stored on it. Put a keylock or PIN code in place to ensure they at least have to get past a password.
  • Back It Up: There are phone software options that allow you to remotely wipe your phone clean if you lose it. Just make sure you keep your phone regularly backed up so that if you do need to clear it, you do not lose your data.
  • Limit It: Your phone will offer to store passwords, usernames, credit card information, etc. for you. Turn it down every time to ensure you protect that information.
