Re: If you run android 5 you can share safely
Ah ok, I am less familiar with Android. Good, I am glad that this functionality exists in that environment. Its a step in the right direction that I will look into further. Thanks,

Re: Accountability
That's what I am trying to get at. Is that functionality available from a mobile perspective? If so I was not aware and could you elaborate as to how this is accomplished (The method to which you are referring)?

Re: If you run android 5 you can share safely
True, you can enable Multiple User Accounts on Android. That is good but unfortunate not the case in iOS.

Re: Accountability
Very true. But lets make a connection that if you are sharing a device its normally on the premise that you trust the person and are most likely making it so they can leverage your device as well. At that point you could add your own fingerprint to ensure repeated access. Considering that the sharing of the device is deliberate I think the only way to ensure a means of restriction is segmented user access. IE to build on your example, if you have 2 people and I sign in with my fingerprint I end up getting my own security settings whereas another persons fingerprint will log them in yielding different security settings.

Re: Accountability
If you share device you are basically sharing password too, fingerprint scanner is a good way to overcome that problem.

Mobile device hacking?
 

I would like to take it in this sense, it may be the fact that not everything runs on mobile devices such as Java, Flash, .... and that actually crates a level of security where the hackers need to find out a different ways of hacking and that is basically too much work.

If you run android 5 you can share safely
From the Lollipop site:
  • Device Sharing


    More flexible sharing with family and friends
    • Multiple users for phones. If you forget your phone, you still can call any of your friends (or access any of your messages, photos etc.) by simply logging into another Android phone running Lollipop. Also perfect for families who want to share a phone, but not their stuff
    • Guest user for phones and tablets means you can lend your device and not your info
    • Screen pinning: pin your screen so another user can access just that content without messing with your other stuff

Re: Accountability
Ah thats a good point. I am not sure, besides not letting your children play with the device, how to lock that down. On PC's you can set non-administrative users so they have minimal capabilities but that functionality doesn't really carry over into the mobile realm.

Re: Accountability
I was a little confused about the device-sharing thing, but one example Aruba gave was letting your kids play on your smartphone or tablet.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
