One of the best ways to secure your mobile business communications and data is to reduce your chance of being a target. Simple thought, but how do you realistically do that? 

Believe it or not, the type of mobile phone you use will play a significant part in making your business a target.

In a study carried out in 2019, it showed that certain brands of smartphone are far more likely to be targeted by hackers than others. The table below shows the volumes of UK phones that are most targeted by hackers.

The figures represent the number of searches made on “how to hack” each brand of phone:
