UAH

2012 UAH Awareness Campaign

Stop. Think. Connect.

Mobile devices are becoming increasingly popular. With the use of many different phones and tablets becoming more and more widespread, they also are becoming more attractive as targets for cyber criminals.

Don't underestimate the power in your hands. Your Andriod or Apple device is basically a computer, and it has the same limitations and weaknesses as any other computer. Learn more about the precautions you should take to protect your mobile device and the information stored in it.
