Surveys Reveal Lax Mobile Security Among Federal Workers


The use of mobile devices provides significant benefits in convenience and workplace productivity. However, two recent reports indicate that, in the enthusiasm for using mobile technologies, U.S. government workers too often ignore security protocols associated with mobile IT.
