Here’s an interesting story I stumbled across. Didn’t seem to get much coverage elsewhere. Apparently people can’t even visit our own White House without getting victimized. Man….that train of thought could go in SO many directions. Anyway, the lesson is to not leave your Blackberries, smartphones, and PDAs lying around in your purse, on your desk, or any other conspicuous place where they can be taken.
No worries here though, I’m sure. With all the news stories and information about mobile device security, I’m sure they were all locked down and no sensitive information was put at risk. And with the FISMA security requirements, I’m sure any government systems were extra secure. [ha!]
Folks, we’re just at the beginning of this mobile device security quandary…There’s a whole new frontier full of criminal mischievousness ahead of us. I’m sure the stories are going to get more and more interesting.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
