Twitter mobile

Mark your calendar and be sure to join us next Wednesday, May 2, 2012, when we’ll be holding a Twitter chat on a timely topic: mobile device security. Joining me will be representatives of Symantec, a leading provider of information protection solutions for SMBs.

Do you keep hearing that every year is going to be THE year of mobile?  One thing I know:  mobile usage is growing much faster in 2012 than in the past.  And just like with your computers and servers, there are security issues around mobile.   You may not even be aware of just how many risks there are.

Have no fear!  That’s what we’re here for.  We’re going to cover key security aspects you need to know to protect your business — and still get the benefit of being mobile and serving your customers who want to be mobile.

Here’s a sneek peek of the questions the experts will be discussing:

  • What is the biggest security issue when it comes to small-business mobile usage?  I think you will be very surprised by the answer!
  • How does mobile security compare with other computing risks? What are the highest risk levels and why?
  • What kind of losses can there be if mobile devices are hacked, stolen or otherwise insecure?
