The Banking Technology Mobile summit was held earlier this summer and with a full day of mobile and banking content combined with technology. It is truly exciting as we see La Caixa rolling out mobile contactless payments in the relatively small Spanish town Sitges (and getting loads of attention!) and Barclaycard that has been working on mobile payments since 2008 with optimistic, yet relatively few customers. So innovation is great in the banking sector for mobile services, but volumes are still small. Alltogether we are still on a showcasing level of mobile services offered to pay via mobile phones and other banking services. Gartner is though reassuring us that the boom will come by 2012 when we will se mobile payments double

Mobile security is still a major concern, but as the recent Symantec...

Happy SysAdminDay!

I'm kicking myself for nearly letting this one sneak by without my notice! But how can I let the day pass without giving a shout out to all the Connect members to toil away and don't get nearly enough recognition?!

This day isn't as widely known as International Talk Like a Pirate Day but it's still a day that's dear to my heart because it's one day out of the year that recognizes YOU! Without you, I wouldn't have a job, so keep up the good work!

Go ahead, take tomorrow off!

Summertime! That means sunshine, travel…and additional data threats to your smartphone. What’s that? You don’t consider mobile security risks and summertime as going hand in hand? Well, consider this: As you and your employees take some well-deserved time off, will you be taking smartphones with you? Of course you will. And chances are you will be accessing corporate data. In fact, a recent Symantec survey on security habits of mobile device users revealed that 62 percent of corporate smartphone users access sensitive corporate information while on vacation, and 81 percent will at least be checking their business email accounts.

With a variety of looming threats, from unsecured networks to malicious apps, corporate smartphone users should carefully consider what they can do to make sure a vacation from the office doesn’t turn into a vacation from security. The following best practices will help you keep mobile devices secure.

Let’s pretend for a moment that you’re on a business trip. You hear the boarding call for your flight and reach down to grab you laptop – only your laptop isn’t there. Whether it was left at security or snagged by another traveler in the terminal, your laptop is gone and your company data is at risk.

 

So what do you do? Typically you’ll need to make a call to the office, notifying your IT department of the incident. This call will initiate a chain reaction of events set into place to ensure measures are taken to secure the files and equip you with a new device to keep business running as usual. This process typically involves a series of forms, approvals, signatures, etc.

 

While it may sound simple, enforcing processes with effectiveness is one of hardest things for companies to do. With multiple people involved and steps required, any number of things can go wrong, slowing down the process –...

More than ever before, smartphones are keeping us connected both personally and professionally. Because most of us have a preference as to the ideal smartphone, IT departments are increasingly being tasked with managing a mix of business-liable and employee-liable devices. This trend has become known as the consumerization of IT.

Symantec has developed a short survey to get smartphone end users’ perspectives on this trend. We’d also like to learn more about how your employer is managing the growing use of smartphones, especially those being purchased and brought into the organization by employees. The quick five minute survey can be found here: http://bit.ly/gsdgmX.

Once you’ve taken the survey, please stay tuned to this blog as we’ll be sharing the results once the survey is complete.
