Each time a mobile device is lost or stolen, the opportunity for a data breach of sensitive information increases. Since 2005, more than 245 million records containing sensitive personal information have been involved in security data breaches in the United States alone. The average cost of a data breach to organizations in the United States in 2008 rose to $202 per compromised customer record, up from $197 the year prior. According to recent estimates, data breaches cost companies in the United States an aggregate $18 billion annually. The opportunity to conduct business anywhere, anytime, clearly comes at a price.
