You may have already read about users who find their iPhone or iPad locked, with instructions for wiring money to ransom the device. Given the amount of data – both work and personal – that we have on our devices, that is a pretty serious breach of security.
Although most ransoms have occurred in Australia, there are reports that it has begun to spread to the United States. This is a good time to review your phone security to prevent these types of attacks and loss of your data.
Although recent attacks have focused on the iPhone, we’ve included some security tips for Android at the end of this article as well.
Although we have included links with instructions and for further reading, IT is happy to help you personally with any security concerns or questions you have.
