Week 6 Assignment – Mobile Security Issues

With the company laptop, you won the difficult battle of deploying appropriate controls: whole-disk encryption, data leakage prevention, group policy–controlled everything. When you weren’t looking, users started working on their other devices more and more; then, one fateful day, your gadget-happy executive attended a big meeting with an iPad to take notes and a new battle began. It was just a matter of time before people started talking about data breaches with unprotected smart phones and tablets.
