When it comes to securing the human, Mobile Device are one of the top ten risks I'm seeing organizations the most concerned about. It makes sense, mobile devices now have the same computing power (and risks) as your laptop.  The only difference is mobile devices are easier to lose or have stolen.  However, risks with mobile devices are only going to  increase to the point where there are greater than your laptop.   Think about it, many of us no longer carry digital cameras or 2-factor authentication tokens because they have been replaced by our smartphones.  As technology continues to develop, other functions will be replaced also by our smartphones, such our wallets (think digital money), control of our car, access to our house or monitoring of our health.  Traditionally, if someone gained access to your computer this impacted your finances or online accounts.  In the future if someone gains access to your mobile device, the impact will be far greater as they can control almost every aspect of your life.
