Employees this Christmas who received or boughtt nice new smartphones or tablets could be presenting hackers the gift of access to your IT systems.
This is a time of year when new devices that are connected to a poorly protected network with inadequate polices risk being a target of an attack.
New devices that are used in your business could be connecting to the wireless network and then onto personal or external cloud systems that might not have protection or been tested.
2014 saw many very high profile cyber-attacks and this is set to continue into 2015 and beyond so don’t get caught out.

• Set expectations with your users.
