DOWNSIZE PDA RISKS. SUPERSIZE PDA REWARDS.


PDAs have moved into the workplace. More than 25 million of them will soon be accessing company networks. Are you prepared? If you’re an information technology or business executive, the time is right to size up the unique security risks these small, portable devices pose. This essential primer for those deploying, managing or using PDAs in the workplace will help you understand and address the challenges presented by this emerging set of technologies. Written by respected IT security experts, PDA Security, shows you how to:

* Assess the level of threat posed by PDAs in your organization

* Develop a measured and enforceable policy response to minimize the risk

* Understand the technical issues and defend against the threats PDAs pose to privacy, theft of sensitive information, system corruption, and other issues of network and data misuse

* Analyze secure solutions for all major handhelds -- Palm, PocketPC, and RIM

* Examine a case study on securing Palm for the work environment

* Learn why solutions almost always involve the operating system

* Discover what White-Hat Hacking reveals about vulnerabilities

* Find profitable ways to integrate PDAs into business plans and networks, while downsizing risks

* Get an insider’s preview of the future of handhelds -- the PCs of the early twenty-first century


With a Foreword by Rebecca Bace, internationally renowned intrusion-detection and network-security specialist and former member of the United States Department of Defense National Security Agency (NSA).
