Data Security of Mobile Phones, from the Aspect of University Students


  • Pál Fehér-Polgár

    () (Óbuda University)


The dramatic spreading of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) brings new information security risks and threats. These have to be taken seriously because they are weakening not just our personal security but the security of the organisations too. The security of organisations is mainly based on the attitude for security of the organisational members. Accordingly, the exploration of their approaches of their mobile devices’ security is a must. In my paper I have investigated the students of the Óbuda University to find out how they perceive the security of their smartphones. My hypothesis is that even those who use these devices a lot are still not aware of the security risks and threats and they do not have enough or any kind of countermeasure against these hazards.
