British consumers have been rocked by several high-profile data breaches in recent months. Last month it emerged that up to 34,000 holidaymakers at Butlin’s resorts may have had their personal information stolen by hackers. A few weeks later, British Airways admitted its security systems had been breached in a malicious criminal attack on its website, which led to hundreds of customers having their personal and financial details compromised.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are coming in to force on 25th May 2018, and with this the security, protection and management of mobile devices must be considered as one of the most important subjects for all companies and IT personnel.
With more high-profile device attacks appearing in the news, there is now a far greater scrutiny surrounding the possibility of confidential data falling into the wrong hands, and Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a key area for review.
