The growth of electronic devices from the smart phone to the tablet has opened users to potential threats that
many do not realize exist. In many cases the user’s device can be compromised without their knowledge and they
can spread the malware to other users or have their hard drive formatted or worse. Regardless of the device, users
have to be aware of the threat in order to prevent themselves from becoming a victim. The presentation will cover
the principles of information security and how the individual can protect themselves. It will also introduce a new,
expanding area that offers employment in an interesting and challenging career field.
