Vol. 21  No. 4  pp. 249-254


Our society is depending on mobile devices that play a major role in our lives. Utilizing these devices is possible due to their speed power and efficiency in performing basic as well as sophisticated operations that can be found in traditional computers like desktop workstations. The challenge with using mobile devices is that organizations are concerned with the interference between personal and corporate use due to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. This paper highlights the importance of mobile devices in our daily tasks and the associated risks involved with using these devices. Several technologies and countermeasures are reviewed in this paper to secure the mobile devices from different attempts of attacks. It is important to mention that this paper focuses on technical measures rather than considering different aspects of security measures as recommended by the cybersecurity community.
