ITChatter: Mobile Device Security

Penn State's Ag IT team hosts lunch conversations about different technologies and their uses, called the ITChatter series. This month's session will be looking at Mobile Device Security. Are our smartphones too 'smart'? Vince Verbeke, Support Specialist with the college will share what he knows about protecting you and your device.

Smartphones store your personal data and sensitive information. In this ITChatter session we will explore what vulnerabilities and risks are associated with these devices. We'll also look at twelve ways to help protect your smartphone.

Participants are asked to arrive in the Adobe Connect meeting room ( at noon. The chatter gets started at 12:15 and will wrap up by 12:50. You can join us each month or participate in just the ITChatters that interest you.

Participants can login as a guest.
