Despite the growing advancements in technology that have enabled hyperconnectivity, a larger storage system that can be accessed anywhere in the world, and other benefits, cybercrime is still a possible occurrence and the increase in mobile phishing. In the past decade alone, malware, man-in-the-middle attacks, and data leaks have risen as the most widespread threats for organizations who’ve incorporated mobile devices into their processes.
