  • Presentation: Securing Mobile Devices Against Cyber Criminals is Serious Busines
    Mobile devices help make businesses more profitable. However, Android and iOS devices, the networks they connect to, and the apps they run can all be exploited to steal sensitive information such as documents, calendar appointments, email messages, texts, and attachments. Cyber criminals can use a device’s microphone and camera to spy on closed-door meetings, and then send recordings to a secret remote server. They can even capture user names and passwords as users log in to corporate systems containing sensitive data. Unsecured networks, or networks using faulty or old security measures, make it possible for criminals to snoop, steal, or even change data sent to and from devices. Malicious apps can give attackers virtually unrestricted access to a device, its data, and your network.
