Smartphone users 'often not security savvy'

Smartphone users 'often not security savvy' 2 June 2011 15:23:42

A number of people in the UK appear to lack security awareness when it comes to their smartphone devices, according to an expert.

Con Mallon, director of regional product marketing at Norton, noted that some consumers may be unaware of how advanced smartphones are compared to traditional handsets.

He stated: "The smartphone I have, it basically equates to the hardware spec of the laptop I had four or five years ago, but people don't see it in that context."

Education is now something which needs to be focused on, Mr Mallon went on to say, so that people become more aware of the threats which can be posed by hackers.

Regardless of the rise of smartphones, users of USB memory sticks may be interested to note that Roddy McLean, marketing director at Crucial.com, recently suggested that photos and videos will continue to be stored by people on their personal computers.ADNFCR-2752-ID-800565505-ADNFCR
