Security Concerns are Hampering Mobile Commerce

KPMG has released their annual survey on mobile commerce, which this year shows that there only 19% of the subjects surveyed are comfortable with using their mobile devices for the purchase of goods. The survey covered 300 people and found only 8% actually use their phones for the purchase of goods. Interestingly, the survey found that older people are less concerned about security, but then they use fewer mobile applications.

Security of mobile devices is a constant concern of systems administrators and IS auditors as well.

Here's a write-up on the KPMG survey.
