The next step in #BYOD #security

The next step in #BYOD #security | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

The explosion in development and adoption of smartphones and tablets for both personal and business use in the past two years is both a blessing and a curse to IT departments globally.

 

Known as the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon, on one hand, there is an opportunity for greatly increased productivity and decreased costs.

 

===> On the other, there are increased security risks, management issues and even data and device ownership and governance issues. <===

Mac users 'just as easily duped by cybercriminals' as Windows users

Mac users 'just as easily duped by cybercriminals' as Windows users | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it
In the face of new threats aimed at OS X, a security expert has warned that Mac users may be even more vulnerable than Windows users.

 

Because Windows users are more likely to be running up-to-date anti-virus programs, Graham Cluley of Sophos says that many Mac users are missing a "valuable safety net".

 

In the face of several new threats targeting Mac OS X that have been discovered in recent weeks, Mac users should make sure that they have some form of protection, Cluley said. However, keeping your computer safe from cybercriminals isn't just a case of having anti-virus programs installed - it's about making sensible choices as well.

 

As we have seen on the Windows platform, the majority of the attacks do not exploit any weakness in the operating system but instead take advantage of the bug in people's brains.

 

===> Mac users can be just as easily duped as their Windows cousins into making poor choices, and could end up infected as a result, Cluley told Macworld. <===

 

Use antivirus programs!
