Following on from the continued success of the First Wednesday and Sales Marketing Meet ups, the GEC community has introduced #TechThursday to our monthly meet ups.
All clients are welcome to join the meeting to discuss technology in their business and share what is working/not working for them.
It’s a great opportunity for all to broaden your technical knowledge and keep yourselves up-to-date in the forever changing ‘Technical World’.
This month’s hot topic is App Security – The War for your Data
Mobile apps; practically everyone uses them and you can’t have a smart phone without them. Whether it is Android or iOS, there are serious risks involved that end users are not being made aware of, and the developers would rather it stay that way.
There is a war on for your data and end users need to be made aware of how their data, everything from photos to contacts, are being taken from your devices. One of the largest risks posed to a smart phone user is a friendly contact that doesn’t partake in safe mobile practices.
This Tech Thursday will highlight the worst apps for siphoning data, how its done, the risks others pose to you just by having your number in their phone, and how to protect yourself and your data.
