Published on

The smartphone is here to stay (at least for now). According to Nielsen, 55% of people buying a new phone bought a smartphone, up from 34% a year ago. This means that many people are walking around with a hand-held computer containing their personal information and used to access online information including banks, healthcare and social media sites. But these phones suffer from the same security problems as computers including malware, phishing, and malicious links. And new apps coming out all the time! In this interactive discussion we will look at 10 tips to help keep our personal data safe when using a smartphone.
