Book Description

Now UPDATED for small businesses. The headlines are constantly filled with stories of department stores, financial institutions, social media sites, and other sophisticated networks that have come under attack by even more sophisticated hackers and organizations. These hackers and organizations are able to break in and steal the personal information of the subscribers or their customers and put both their identities and their financial resources at risk.

As more and more users download applications, those who have ill intentions are able to sneak into our mobile devices. Many times, they not only attack the user, but, by extension, they are also able to attack the companies that they work for.

To stay protected, you really need to take dramatic action.

Some actions are easier than others, and some may require you to buy a tool or some software, but it's well worth the effort. As these devices become more integrated into our lives, we need to take full responsibility for what we as individuals can do to protect ourselves, thereby protecting our online identity, and, in many cases, protecting our careers and our financial well-being.

The precautions and actions that you can take to protect yourself are divided into four different areas that present security concerns for the average user of a Smartphone or mobile device. One outlines the actions that you can take when you lose your device. The second covers how best not to provide the wrong types of information, or what's commonly known as TMI—too much information.

The third section covers how best to protect yourself in terms of accessibility, utilizing public communication resources—such as public Wi-Fi.

The final section covers what is generally known as socialized or social engineering. People or organizations that are trying to access via an application or imaging, some form of download, text message, or some kind of incoming communication, anything they can do to gain access to your information.

If you have a Smartphone or mobile device, there is a high likelihood that it has a lot of important information, which means you need to take every precaution and implement the proper security essentials whenever possible to ensure its security and safety. This book will give real ways to evaluate and choose from to better protect your smartphone, mobile device, and social media presence.
