Information Security and Mobile Devices: Web-Based End-User Training from Cosaint

August 2, 2005 -- Cosaint (http://www.cosaint.net) - a Mount Vernon (WA) based company specializing in end-user security awareness training – has announced the release of "Information Security and Mobile Devices" - a web-based training course designed to help organizations educate users of laptops, cellphones and PDA's about the risks that they face and the preventative measures that they should be taking.

Mobile devices such as laptop computers, cellphones, keyfob USB drives and PDA's can make life much easier. But they also create serious information security risks since users may be taking sensitive information outside the carefully controlled office environment. And the consequences can be severe: over the last few years, examples have included a CEO losing a laptop containing company secrets and a financial services company losing information on 200,000 customers as well as the millions of dollars spent each year on replacing laptops and cellphones that have been dropped!

"Information Security and Mobile Devices" is a short (approximately 30 minute) course ideal for mobile workers such as sales staff or field engineers. We start by defining what we mean by "mobile devices" - including many devices that the students might not have thought of - and discuss why they pose a particular security problem. Then, we address security threats that an end-user may experience during normal use of these devices such as:

* viruses and the use of antivirus software
* what firewalls do and why they are used
* the dangers of wireless networks
* shoulder surfing and overheard cellphone conversations in public places

Next, we discuss the risk of loss or damage to mobile devices that might impact information confidentiality, integrity and/or availability including:

* theft and where it is likely to occur
* using passwords and encryption (where possible) to protect data
* the damage caused by devices being dropped
* carrying bags for laptops that are too obvious
* caring for data disks, CD's and DVD's
* how harsh environmental conditions can affect mobile devices

The course concludes with a short multiple-choice quiz to test the students' mastery of the subject.

"Information Security and Mobile Devices" is available today through Cosaint's hosted learning management system (LMS), or can be provided in SCORM/AICC format for hosting on a client's own LMS. It can also be customized to meet a client's specific needs. Pricing varies with number of students – please contact Cosaint for more details.
