About the Class

Since the birth of the iPhone in 2007, the smartphone has become our mobile device of choice, allowing us to be more connected and productive than ever.

With these extremely powerful mini-computers in our pockets, containing private, confidential, and sometimes sensitive data, it has evolved into an increasing target for hackers and governmental agencies alike from all over the globe. And with more than 3.5 billion devices in use, it's easy to understand why smartphone users are likely to be targeted.

Therefore, it is important to understand the major threat vectors as well as how to reduce the risks of our smartphones getting hacked.

What will you learn in this course?

The main objective of this course is for you to know:

  1. The risks involved with having a smartphone hacked
  2. The different attack vectors specific to smartphone security
  3. Best practices in terms of smartphone security through 10 security tips

The course has been split into three modules.

  • Module 1: Answers the question - "Why bother protecting my smartphone?"
  • Module 2: Explores three different attack vectors on smartphone
  • Module 3: Gives you ten smartphone security tips

Who should take this course?

  • This course is for private individuals and professionals who own their personal iPhone or Android device and want to learn how to keep them as secure as possible.
  • If you work for a large enterprise and your only smartphone was provided by your employer, then your device may already have some restrictions in place.
  • This is usually done through an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution, which is not covered in this course.
  • Apart from that, most of the content still applies and will help you understand why your IT department has decided to implement strong security measures on your work smartphone.
  • If you have some doubts, the best is to contact your IT department for guidance before signing up for this course.
