The full report is an 80 page+ analyst report that explores all of the data that has been derived from the 2010 mSecurity survey. It includes quantitative data, analysis, industry news, opinion and recommendations and offers real insight for market intelligence, product marketing and private equity companies that are interested in this emerging area of information security.
Goode Intelligence (GI) conducted a survey on key aspects of mSecurity (mobile security) during October and November 2010. Key members of the Information Security and IT management community were invited to participate and were guaranteed anonymity and confidentiality regarding individual responses. A total of 73 Information Security and IT management professionals responded.
The participants represented a wide crosssection of sectors including finance, defence, government, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, telecommunications, oil and gas, retail, media and real estate. Five regions around the world; Africa, Asia Pacific, European Union, Rest of Europe (including Russia) and North America were represented.
Participants ranged from senior managers to consultants and included the following roles:
Chief Executive Officer, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Network Security Manager, Head of IS Governance and Security, Security Analyst and Information Security Consultant.
This ‘highlight’ report incorporates responses from both the survey and analysis of the results by GI.
2010 has been an extraordinary year for mobile. Smartphones and tablet computers are having a transformational effect on the way that an organisation does business and manages information. There is a big question over whether information security professionals can keep up with the pace of change currently seen with smart mobile devices (SMD) and can manage the risks associated with them.
The Goode Intelligence mSecurity Survey 2010 provides a snapshot of how an organisation views mobile security (mSecurity) and asks key questions to information security professionals and IT managers around the world.
Question topics included:
• How organisations are tackling the security problems posed by smart mobile devices
• How information security professionals rank the security of smartphones
• How ready and equipped business is to deal with these unique challenges
• The mSecurity incidents that have been reported within an organisation, including malware, voice interception, data loss and theft
• Is mSecurity being embedded into company information security policy?
• The technology controls being adopted to counteract the main mSecurity threats This vendor-independent survey also examines how smartphones like the iPhone and Google Android phone and tablet computers, such as the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, are altering the way that security professionals deal with enterprise security.
This is the second consecutive year that GI has conducted its mSecurity survey.
