Yes, or at least tape the phone to his arm or something.

Re: Lockdown
Same here! I understand the security concerns behind reporting missing/broken phones, but it's hard to blame someone who doesn't want to tell their boss that their 4th device is gone. He might want to invest in one of those "lifeproof" cases - expensive but worth it (from what I've heard, anyway).

Re: Lockdown
Wow, after the second time I would have been too scared to ask my employer for another phone.

Re: Security on the go
There was a time people didn't expect viruses on macs because hackers only went after Window PCs. The mindset is the same. I notice even a lot of the headlined hacks and data breaches fail to mention or focus on mobile's role.

Also, if I wanted to download antivirus software for my phone right now, I wouldn't know where to turn - I expect that app developers are taking care of this.

Re: Lockdown
I have a cousin who not too long ago replaced his work phone 4 times in a year. It was left behind on bus, again in a cab, and twice broken. His supervisor was none too pleased, and he took his time telling them about the last missing-phone incident. I can't really blame him for this very human hesitation even while adamently agreeing employees need to call in missing phones asap so they can comply with this lock-down security rule.

Re: Lockdown
I have never logged onto an unknown wifi, or someone's hotspot - it seems like mobile suicide. I find it hard to believe anyone would take that risk!

Re: Lockdown
Good point. Also in relation to #3, I think using caution on public wi-fi should go without saying. That's a terrible place to share passwords or other private information.

Re: Security on the go
Very true, but even in the current day where smartphones are ubiquitous, many people still don't think of them the way they do laptops, OCs etc, and don't think about putting antivirus software on there.

Lockdown
#3 is obviously something that should go without saying, but it's surpirsing how many employees using corporate devices don't realize the seriouses of the physical security of their phone.
