Posted on 08 January 2013.
The technology supershow known as CES is taking place in Las Vegas this week. Novell released an infographic that looks at mobile security and breaks down a number of figures relating to mobile security not only at the event but in general.

This includes what information is commonly lost when a mobile device is stolen, figures relating to the current state of security on mobile devices and the value of data lost.
