Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking is designed to provide skills you need to understand the security strengths and weaknesses in Apple iOS and Android devices. Mobile devices are no longer a convenience technology: they are an essential tool carried or worn by users worldwide, often displacing conventional computers for everyday enterprise data needs. You can see this trend in corporations, hospitals, banks, schools, and retail stores throughout the world. Users rely on mobile devices more today than ever before -- we know it, and the bad guys do too. The Mobile Device Security Analyst course (SEC575) examines the full gamut of these devices.
