Mobile Security

We tend to place a lot of emphasis in securing our place of employment by monitoring workstations & servers. As each day goes by, we are relying more and more on our mobile devices due to continuous connectivity & ease. We need to spend some time making sure our mobile devices are secure as well. Here are a few tips:

  • Only install apps from a trusted source
  • Avoid transmitting or storing personal information on the device
  • Lock your device with Pin, Password, or Biometrics
  • Encrypt
  • Have a backup plan if you can’t locate it. i.e. Find My Phone, Android Device Manager, Cerberus
  • Backup your Data
  • Keep the operating system & apps updated
