TechInsurance, the nation's leading online insurance agency for IT freelancers, contractors, and small businesses, reminds IT professionals that an increase in mobile purchases opens the door to an increase in cybercrime. To help minimize the likelihood that hackers compromise a client's network and expose IT businesses to third-party liability, TechInsurance recommends that IT professionals issue a security reminder to clients outlining how they can prevent data breaches during the busy holiday season.
"Your clients are tapping into airport Wi-Fi, they're scrambling to make last-minute purchases, they're entering their credit card info on the checkout screen," said
But clients who engage in last-minute mobile shopping could be exposing their networks to cyber criminals. And if they're shopping on a mobile device that is also used for work, such an exposure could result in a large-scale data breach. As the point person for clients' IT needs, tech professionals could be held partially liable for any losses such a breach causes.
