    Presentation Overview

    How To Secure Palm OS Devices

    The Security SIG is proud to present an evening with one of the most entertaining and informative Palm security experts in Silicon Valley - Gordon Clyne.

    Individuals and enterprise customers now realize that PDAs (personal digital assistants) can play a role in personal and business productivity. CRM (Customer Relationship Management) applications, SFA (Sales Force Automation)applications, HIPAA-compliant (Health Information Portability and Accountably Act) applications and wireless data transfers are becoming more common on PDAs.

    Crucial customer data, medical data, credit card data, banking information, and other mission critical information is now being carried on PDAs. With these new IT uses comes data vulnerabilities and potential for abuse. What are the best ways to secure the information on your PDA? Where are the vulnerabilities and threats? What new products are attempting to address the security threats, what security applications are free and which ones should you consider buying and when? What new paid security products still need to be created?

    Gordon Clyne is a highly informative PDA security expert and will offer tips and tricks that you can use everyday on your PDA. Gordon Clyne is also very amusing in his delivery and style. This is one event that PDA novices and PDA experts alike will not want to miss!
