A recent email that came across most desks may not have been read but take time and review these tips for mobile security:
Keep your mobile device physically secure.
Control the data stored on the device. Do not store sensitive information on the device unless you have authorization, and the device is encrypted. Contact the IT Help Desk, 252.328.9866/1.800.340.7081 for assistance. Use a secure password/PIN to access your device. Enable encryption (see Smartphone Encryption Recommendations at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-itcs/itsecurity/upload/SmartphoneEncryption.pdf). This will protect stored data if it is lost or stolen. Delete ECU sensitive data and sensitive emails from your smartphone as soon as possible. Consider installing antivirus software. This may prevent, detect and quarantine malware.
