Course Description

Mobile devices are convenient, portable, inexpensive, powerful and essential to a lot of people. Considering many people have their own smartphones, it makes sense for some businesses to make use of that by allowing employees to use their smartphones to connect to corporate infrastructure for communication functions. This introduces security issues. Smartphones and tablets are not the only areas where wireless technology introduces risk into the enterprise environment, not to mention putting individuals at risk. Bluetooth, 802.11 wireless networks and near field communications all have the potential to be harmful. This course will cover the risks and remediations associated with wireless technology.
