Gurry & Rogers wants to alert every business owner, its employees, and family members to the exposure of a risk that you need to be aware of.  It concerns our mobile devices such as phones, iPads, and tablet computers.  It’s called Cyber Risk and the risk is big!  

Many of you are alert to the dangers of your computer systems being hacked and sensitive information stored on those computers being stolen.  When it happens, it can be very expensive to rectify and it can expose businesses to serious legal penalties.  Presently, with our computer systems, we can protect our data with diligent work procedures and software.  However, when it comes to mobile devices, the protection is simply not there.  There are some technologies in the pipeline that hopefully will be effective at providing good protection.

In the meantime, our recommendations are: 
1. Communicate with all your employees and family members the importance of protecting your mobile devices
2. Develop a company policy that dictates what information can and cannot be stored on your mobile devices. 

In addition, insurance policies can be arranged to protect you from cyber losses;  if you want more information about these, please contact us.  Cyber Risk is an ever changing concern so try to stay current on the risks involved and the methods of to protecting yourself.
