CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Mobile devices represent an increasingly important proportion of the
technology market, with laptops, PDAs and smartphones all offering substantial
opportunities to improve personal communications and business flexibility. In
addition, removable storage, such as memory sticks, now enables enormous
quantities of data to be carried around, making it available to use on demand
in any location. However, such undoubted advantages can also bring considerable
risks, with devices being physically vulnerable to loss, theft and damage, as
well as potentially exposed to various forms of electronic attack. As such,
there is a significant and growing need for protection, in order to enable us
to get the best out of the kit in an otherwise dangerous digital world. The
book provides a concise reference to the key security issues affecting those
that deploy and use mobile technologies to support their organizations. It aims
to raise awareness of the threats to which mobile devices, users and data are
exposed, as well as to provide advice on how to address the problems. The
content is essentially applicable to anyone using and deploying mobile devices,
but particularly relevant to those wanting guidance on why protection is
required and what should be done to achieve it (while at the same time noting
that it is not a detailed how-to guide for any particular technology platform).
In addition to the main discussion and evidence, each chapter concludes with a
series of takeaways that summarize the key messages, and can be used as
high-level reminders of the points that we need to remember.
