Expert: Smartphone use make US more vulnerable to cyber threats
Tuesday - 9/20/2011, 11:50am EDT
Former White House cybersecurity adviser Richard Clarke said recently smartphones remain a huge cybersecurity problem for the U.S.
In fact, in an interview with Computerworld-New Zealand, Clarke said that smartphones are the newest and largest vulnerability in the U.S.
He said managers are caving to pressure from employees to use the devices, and that CIOs are knowingly authorizing another way into the network. He says there should be a 'secure app store' checked for security.
He added that providing smart phones to soldiers is a good idea, but only if those phones are secure.
