In this week's edition, we see an article by CBS (How do you help customers protect their mobile devices?) on ways bank customers can secure their mobile devices. One of the items in the list includes using a pin code. We all know it can be difficult enough to get employees to lock phones per your bank's policy, so how do we get customers to go through the inconvenience of using pins on their phones? We need to educate them on why it's important. Ask them if they want their emails read by someone who finds their phone, or if they want their pictures potentially shared with the world. Maybe your customers will think differently if you add a personal spin to the education...
