Have you ever wondered what would happen if you lost your cell phone or your laptop? What’s the worst-case scenario? If you’re like most Americans, you use multiple devices in multiple capacities, accessing both work and personal information on them. So, if you lost your cell phone tomorrow and you are unprepared, you could be giving up vital company secrets to whomever finds your lost device.

If you generate sensitive documents for your company, you may think the solution is to ban these documents from being accessed on personal devices. However, prohibition doesn’t work. A better tactic is to train employees on the proper way to handle sensitive materials on personal devices. Taking simple steps can prevent your important documents from accidentally falling into the wrong hands.
