  3. Wireless access points – Wireless APs provide immediate connectivity to any user within proximity of the network and are naturally insecure, regardless if encryption is used or not. Protocols such as wireless encryption protocol contain known vulnerabilities that are easily compromised with attack frameworks, such as Aircrack
  4. Smartphones and other digital devices – Phones are full-functioning computers, complete with Wi-Fi connectivity, multithreaded operating systems, high storage capacity, high-resolution cameras and vast application support. However, these devices also have the potential to elude traditional data-leak prevention solutions.
  5. E-mail – An electronic mail carries the messages with confidential information that can easily be forwarded to any external target which the e-mails themselves can carry nasty viruses in targeted e-mail via phishing for access credentials from an employee.
