Hands up who enables uses to access their corporate email on their mobiles?

What about other systems? CRM? Accounts? HR?

What about document shares such as One Drive or Dropbox?

Pretty well every organisation allows at least one of these, many allow far more. 

Whether corporate or employee owned (known by the term BYOD - bring your own device), smartphones now have great array of routes into corporate networks, providing access on the go, increasing productivity and improving responsiveness - the benefits of mobile use are many, but they can also represent a significant back door and one which is frequently overlooked. 

The greatest threat is "smishing" - phishing via SMS in order to gain credentials. Typically, an email prompts the user to click through a supposedly urgent link purporting to be from a genuine application and then invites them to enter their credentials. If a user clicks through such links, and then follows the requested steps, credentials are entered which are then harvested. This allows rogue agents to access systems legitimately and the account takeover is complete. Once a third party has these genuine credentials what damage could they do? I'm sure your imagination can give you a good flavour of what that might mean for the enterprise, and also for the individual.  

Mobiles are also susceptible to other attacks -  malware downloaded via a rogue app,  hidden within a document, or downloaded through infected wifi. There are many more and the list grows each day. 

Of course, once malware is installed on the phone, all the usual rules apply, just as they would on a PC or laptop: malware on the phone - caused by a downloaded game, a funny cat video, a "news" site, is able to compromise corporate applications used by the device, or proliferate around the corporate network whilst attached to the office network or wifi. A rogue document from a smartphone can easily be transferred into corporate systems and then onto the wider network.

There a simple ways to avoid such pitfalls and to bring your mobile protection in line with your other corporate security standards. If you're using mobile (officially or unofficially) as part of your access strategy, it's time to bring security in line with the rest of your systems.
