As this article from InfoWorld points out, mobile workers continue to enter the mobility space uninformed about the issues of security revolving around email, WiFi, data syncing, tethering, data stored in the cloud and accessible from just about anywhere, corporate data stored on mobile pcs and tablet pcs, etc. Wherever we step, there seems to be danger lurking. The challenge is in knowing what the danger is, where it is, and how to protect against it.
In that light, I’m pleased to announce that in September, we are launching a regular series focused on mobile computing and security. Our goal for this series is to equip our readers so they can “go mobile with a security mindset”. Our Contributing Writer for this series is Terry Bradley, a Senior Network Security Analyst with Futures-Inc.com. Futures Inc provides network security consulting and products for the government and small / large corporate sector. I’ll share more about Terry in the coming weeks as he begins this series, but until then, join me in welcoming him as a Contributing Writer for GBM.
As Sgt Phil Esterhaus would say, “And, hey – let’s be careful out there.”
