Seminar on using tablets and phones securely

Balancing the need for easy access with the need for security can be a tricky task. EVen more so when you arm staff with smartphones and tablets.  But there are ways to reduce risk whilst maintaining security.

Otago Chamber of Commerce hosts monthly tech sessions. An this month they are covering “Secure Device Managers. A discussion on the risks your business may face when using smartphones in the working environment, and solutions to mitigate the risks, track devices, and secure your data. Relevant for the single device of a small business to large organisations operating thousands of devices.”

That sounds like it could be very useful to nonprofits delivering services in the field.

The session is on 29 April 2016 11:00am to noon at  Otago Chamber of Commerce, Level 3, 442 Moray Place, Dunedin

It’s delivered Ajay Kumar a resident tech expert from Vodafone hosts monthly tech talks to help our members keep up with the latest apps, upgrades and uses for our mobile technology.
