sleepsecure.jpgJust in case you readers weren’t aware, there’s a lot of issues in today’s society regarding security. Now, RIM can swear up and down that their device is more secure than Vista (…it’s a joke), but according to ComputerWorld, there are some dangerous claims regarding smartphone security that might prove otherwise.

These misconceptions range from encryption issues, to wifi-related incidents, and more that you might not have thought about before. It’d be smart for you to give it a look.

It makes sense, then, to challenge the more widespread assumptions, and consider how to handle oft-ignored risks.
