Business Info Fact Of The Day: Smartphones CAN Be Used Securely!

I thought it was pretty silly to read over the past few weeks that President Obama was being pressured to give up his Blackberry because of security reasons.

Information technology CAN be built securely. The problems are…
* too many technology vendors do not take the time or effort to do so,
* too few technology users know anything about how to secure their computing devices
* too few companies provide training or awareness communications about information security and privacy to their personnel
It is good to see the leader of the U.S. setting a good example for information security!
