New research has highlighted how organisations are failing to protect data properly, especially when utilising mobile working.

The study, conducted by Vanson Bourne and commissioned by hardware-encrypted USB drive specialist Apricorn, found that 29% of surveyed organisations have already experienced either a data loss or breach as a direct result of mobile working.

A significant proportion – as many as 44% – expect that mobile workers will expose their organisation to the risk of a data breach.

The findings of the study have been compiled in a handy infographic, which can be found below.
