pic-Chet-Wisniewski-Sophos-Security-ExpertI had the benefit of hearing Chet Wisniewski, Sophos Security Expert, today and he shared some great info about the latest security threats and how to protect yourself from them.  One of my favorites was his strong recommendation not to use that banking app on your smartphone or tablet.  Why you ask?  He indicated that many of them are storing unsecurely storing userid and password information in clear text within the app.  If your mobile device is hacked, this information is easily compromised.  His recommendation?  Use your device’s web browser instead….it’ll be more secure.
