                 ===> An educated user is a safer user. <===

 

Most of them apply also to schools...

 

A very important point, with most people don't apply BUT which is necessary, a MUST is:

 

Educate your users - "The second most important BYOD security defense: user awareness, ...it might be the most important non-hardware, non-software solution available. An informed user is a user who behaves more responsibly and takes fewer risks with valuable company data, including email."

Researchers create virtual Android network to simulate attacks

Researchers create virtual Android network to simulate attacks | Anything Mobile | Scoop.it

What happens to users and their phones in the event of a mobile malware epidemic or a terrorist attack? Researchers at a California-based lab are hoping to answer those very questions using simulations.

 

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories in California have developed a virtual Android-based network that can be used to simulate what could happen in the event of an attack on the devices.

 

The network, dubbed MegaDroid, consists of 300,000 virtual Android devices that receive spoofed GPS coordinates to simulate human movement throughout a town. Researchers have also combined the virtual network with Google Street View, so that they can watch, in real time, the virtual devices wandering around.

Malware On Mobile Grew 163% In 2012, Infecting Around 32.8M Android Devices, Report Says - BYOD

Malware On Mobile Grew 163% In 2012, Infecting Around 32.8M Android Devices, Report Says - BYOD | Anything Mobile | Scoop.it
Mobile service provider NQ Mobile today released a study of malware covering 2012, using data gathered from the company's Security Labs.

 

NQ’s data indicates that Android is a big risk for malware, but iOS has also recently come under fire for free apps that leak more personal data than on other platforms. Overall, mobile security is likely to be a growing concern, and one that could potentially become more complicated as the pace of improvements to mobile tech increases and our usage of those devices grows higher still.

 

===> For now, common sense is probably the best defense against security threats, but a more unified Android platform would help to limit malware problems as well as significantly improve developers’ lives. <===
