Write a 9 pages paper on key features of cyber security. Portability is regarded as a key facet of mobile computing (International Association of Medical Science Educators, n.d.).
This paper intends to provide a discussion about mobile computing. The discussion comprises recognizing the significant cybersecurity vulnerabilities and related threats associated with mobile computing for users. The other aim of the study would be to describe the procedures and policies that can effectively facilitate managing the level of associated risk. The effect on customer satisfaction due to the implementation of policies and procedures would also be evaluated.
From the previous two eras, the status and significance of laptops and notebooks have been increasing day-by-day. The sales of laptops, notebooks, tablet computers, smartphones, and personal digital assistants have increased in different countries as compared to the sales of desktops, which are going down increasingly because these devices provide the users an option of portability.
Mobile computers such as tablet computers provide better facilities for storing the data in abundance than the desktops along with providing an option of portability. However, with the numerous benefits associated with mobile computing devices there raises certain critical vulnerabilities that require to be addressed. Mobile computing vulnerabilities can be classified into three major categories which are physical vulnerability, system vulnerability, and network access vulnerability. A description of these vulnerabilities has been provided below:
Tablet computer, smartphones, and notebooks among others are mobile devices which are taken by professionals and also different individuals when they are traveling or are used at home. These devices or products can be lost or stolen anywhere. Physical vulnerability is associated with lots of discrepancies such as the loss of information and data which are .important and the loss of hardware is also a vital element resulting in vulnerability. .
