Security Stupidity and Cell Phones

Here's a tidbit from CSO online about how mobile phone users don't securely use their phones. The issues run the gamut from physically securing the devices themselves to unsafe browsing -- just the same types of things users are warned against on their desktops.

1) Disabling the lock feature on the phone
2) Keeping information that could compromise company security in "plain sight" on the phone
3) Opening an application from an unsecured/unknown source
4) Using the phone to access dangerous/risky Web sites and Internet locations
5) Leaving the device open to access
