It was Benjamin Franklin who opined that death and taxes are the only certainties in life. This was around the time the American Constitution was ratified in 1788. Now, more than 230 years later, death and taxes continue as life’s certainties, but they are no longer alone. In the digital age, cybercrime is also a certainty. And with 5G connecting even more devices and sophisticated applications, businesses have an ever-increasing amount of attack surfaces to protect. You can be certain that the number of ransomware, malware, and other forms of cyberattacks will increase and grow in sophistication.

For everyone in your company with a smartphone, there’s the potential for malicious apps, network-level attacks, and exploitation of vulnerabilities within the devices and operating systems. At the same time, supporting a mix of personal and corporate data on mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops can offer an open door and welcome mat for malicious actors to access data in your corporate network. If your people are travelling and making use of public Wi-Fi on these devices, they can be further compromised. For cybercriminals, it’s a straightforward matter of targeting the mobile devices with malware and stealing credentials to gain remote access to do serious damage.


Cyberattacks grow more challenging to manage

With a growing volume of data to manage, there’s more pressure on companies to bolster mobile data management, strengthen mobile security measures, and safeguard remote and hybrid working environments. It’s a round-the-clock mission-critical requirement despite it not being your core business. Yet, because technology is moving so fast, many companies just don’t have internal capacity or enough experienced people to keep pace with the threats and continually monitor and improve their security posture. 

Without skilled security professionals, it is more difficult to predict and prevent incidents. According to the IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report 2023, the global average cost of a data breach in 2023 was US$4.45 million, representing a 15% increase over 3 years. Even worse, the average cost of a data breach for those companies with a security skills shortage was US$5.36 million.
