Mobile devices represent an inherent risks because they allow work to be performed outside of the office environment. It is a suggested practice to secure these devices with passwords and encryption if practical. Tracking services are available for most mobile devices that will allow the device to be located if misplaced or left behind. It also is suggested that devices have a remote wipe function is the device cannot be located. Finally it is important to remember that if the devices are used in public, devices may be viewed by others in proximity to the lawyer.
