Is someone waiting to pick off your BlackBerry?

Today, it is almost impossible to do business without a cell phone and a BlackBerry or PDA. These devices are a lifeline for companies large and small. And nobody knows this better than a hacker.

Traditionally, security for mobile devices—which are essentially portable computers loaded with sensitive corporate and client information—has had low priority. Now, a certified ethical hacker explains why this must change and how to change it. Packed with sobering examples of actual attacks, this book shows you how to mount your counterattack.

  • Understand each type of mobile device and the nature of the threat to each
  • Recognize and implement a strong security strategy

  • Identify specific threats to BlackBerry devices

  • Learn from analysis of actual exploits

  • Be able to anticipate future forms of attack

  • See how hackers create and modify their assaults

  • Defend against physical compromise and contamination from PC or LAN connectivity
