It seems like every week another household brand announces that they’ve been the victim of a data breach. Recently, cloud communications company Twilio announced that its internal systems were breached after attackers obtained employee credentials using an SMS phishing attack. Around the same time, Cloudflare, a content delivery network and DDoS mitigation company, reported that its employees were also targeted but their systems were not compromised.

Even before working from anywhere became the norm, organizations of every size were already becoming more reliant on mobile devices and productivity apps. But this reliance has also opened users, devices and data up to more risk. This is why we are thrilled to see our friends at Vodafone offering a new bundle for small businesses that brings together Lookout for Small Business mobile security and Google Workspace, a suite of collaboration and productivity apps by Google.

One of the best ways to stay up to date on how mobile devices affect your organization's security is by reading the Mobile Security Index (MSI) by Verizon. Lookout is a long-time contributor to the report, including the 2022 edition that was just published. This year’s MSI is especially interesting, as it dives deeper into the interconnectivity that now exists between endpoint devices and cloud applications.

On the latest episode of the Security Soapbox podcast, I spoke with Ramy Houssaini, Chief Cyber and Technology Risk Officer at BNP Paribas, about the challenges Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) face in an increasingly complex digital landscape. Change happens quickly in the cloud, and many organizations are faced with the issue of evolving their security strategy at the same pace. This ends up leaving sensitive apps and data vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Greater care should be taken when transferring corporate data onto a remote user's managed endpoint. Certain types of data often require greater levels of authorization to leave the confines of the organization and managed app. When trying to download confidential information, we want to reverify the user's identity with step-up authentication. When the file is downloaded, in addition to file encryption, we also want to add a watermark and redact the confidential information.

When working remotely, users are susceptible to Internet-based threats like phishing and malware. With the Lookout Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, organizations can prevent the loss of personal information and the installation of malware by assessing each link a user tries to access, regardless of what doc or app contains the link.

Organizations need to maintain security controls on corporate data regardless of where the users work location. When uploading content to a cloud storage provider, the Lookout SSE platform can help direct users to use corporate providers instead of personal. And when data is downloaded locally, the Lookout platform can protect the data outside of the managed app through encryption.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints. Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective. Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security.
