With holiday season upon us, its worth remembering the importance of mobile security when abroad, especially when we feel like catching up on our work email.  A recent study from Sourcefire, (part of Cisco) found that UK employees are potentially putting their companies at risk of cyber-attack when using their mobile devices for work purposes while on holiday. 60% admit that they don’t check the security of Wi-Fi networks before connecting to them. Perhaps even more amazing is the sheer number of us checking in with work during our holiday with 72% choosing to spend up to one or two hours per day keeping up with what’s going on in the office!

The study chimes with another recent report from Samsung, which also highlighted the potential dangers IT managers face with changes in working patterns brought about by the prevalence of mobile devices.
