Cyber security report looks at 'smart' phone risks
Mobile communication devices, including “smart phones,” have simplified the way state employees perform their work. But at the same time, they have opened the door for unscrupulous hackers to secretly track and intercept information and spread malicious software.
Idaho’s Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) recently distributed the latest issue of its cyber security newsletter “InsighT to Security.” Thenew issue addresses smart phones and their inherent security risks, rogue or fake anti-virus software and Apple’s efforts to patch a serious vulnerability on its IPhone.
ITD employees who have questions about cyber security can contact Forrest Anderson, ITD’s cyber security officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). To view the latest issue of “InsighT to Security,” visit the State of Idaho Web site.
