Hackers Target Company Owned Cell Phones

Direct consequences can result if you use a company cell phone in a risky / unfriendly territory.

Digits LLC's own Michael McCartney, a computer forensic expert, claims that mistakes like this happen every day.  McCartney states that, "every day in our business we're kind of tossed between an employee doing bad things or an environment in which has been compromised due to internal threats where it has exposed the organization to tremendous risk." In fact, in one year, over 800 companies have all been attacked. McCartney and his team of forensic experts at Digits LLC work to hunt down a syndicate of hackers looking to steal proprietary and private, personal and work-related information. Information that M&T bank, and other large companies find challenging to protect every day. "The threat is evolving," says Corporate Information Security Officer for M&T Bank, John Walp, "More and more banks are adopting mobile applications. So as with any new technology, fraud will follow it."
