Not that difficult to hack a mobile device
We all have mobile devices and we are all connected. Everyone has email accounts, social media and access to their organization's email and their resources. If a hacker wanted to target someone or the organization, the best tool is the Mobile phone.

Most mobile phone users are really not aware of the cyber risks from downloading apps (without reviewing what access they are giving up), connecting to open WIFI networks at the cafe, airport, mall, etc... You might not even need a sophisticated attacking system to infect a mobile device, you just need to manipulate the user.

Everyone I know has a firewall or an antivirus software on their personal computer, however, most people do not have a Mobile Threat Defense app on their mobile phone. So it's important that a mobile phone user install a Mobile Threat Defense app such as the Kaymera CipherWatch app that will detect, prevent and protect the user /organization from mobile threats.
