VIRUS IN THE COMPANY PHONE? HOW TO FIND AND REMOVE SPYWARE

As we know, your company's IT security must be a priority. Often, however, when we hear about phishing attempts, cyber attacks and ransomware, we mainly think about the office computer.

Did you know that your company phone is also a big danger to your company?

Let's start by saying that spyware is a type of software that collects information about your online activity without your consent. 

You should also be aware of the warning signs of spyware.

If you receive social media messages from strange accounts, text messages that create a strong sense of urgency, or unusual e-mails, then you should delete them without clicking on any links or downloading files because they are warning signs.

In fact, there are messages, known as phishing attempts, that will try to trick you into clicking on a link or running software that contains spyware.

To harden the virus on your phone, messages may contain content designed to induce panic, such as a request to pay an invoice that is due. They may also use fake addresses of a contact you trust, such as a supplier or government agency.

Spyware does not install itself on the phone, but it is very likely that an unwitting user, such as an employee tired from a day's work, may click on a dangerous email believing it to be a real business emergency.

If this moment of distraction causes the virus to be installed, it takes a few minutes to infect your phone. If you notice that your business mobile phone switches on and off with different settings or changes that you don't recognise, this could indicate that your device has been compromised.

As you know, your company's most important asset is the data you collect, manage and store every day.

It is therefore important to protect yourself adequately so as not to incur cyber attacks and thus cause irreparable damage to your company.
