Course Details and Schedule

Mobile devices and bring your own device (BYOD) are hot topics in security right now. We now use our mobiles (iPads, phones, tablets, Blackberry, etc.) for anything from checking emails to online banking and shopping so the risks are potentially large. On a mobile device the lines between personal and work use are increasingly blurred. So how secure is your mobile device? This course attempts to explain the actual risks and leave you with some handy tips as to how to ensure your device is configured securely. This is part of a series of one-hour sessions about staying safe and secure online.
