Click through for six reasons mobile security should top your company's priority list in 2013, as identified by Dave Wilkeson, chief technology officer, DRS, LLC.

In 2013, there will be more threats to mobile devices than ever, including company data leakage, mobile-based viruses, and more. Malware and spyware can target mobile devices with little difficulty, and paired with the “bring your own device” phenomenon, companies are often left as sitting ducks to attacks.

IT managers need to address mobile security firsthand as threats become increasingly imminent. Before any company data can be protected from malware or spyware or dangerous hack attempts, organizations should draft rules, regulations and a disaster recovery plan for employees, giving the company more control over work devices and solutions should a security breach occur. Here are a few reasons, as identified by Dave Wilkeson, chief technology officer, DRS, LLC, why mobile security will be more important in 2013 than ever before and a few tips companies can use to address it.
