9780071424905: PDA Security : Incorporating Handhelds into the Enterprise

Because of their small, portable nature, PDAs present a unique security dilemma. This is the essential reference for PSA technicians and IT professionals who need to understand and solve this challenge. Written by a security expert, the book explores PDA security issues and details what must be done to establish privacy in the hand-held medium. It: covers the vast variety of devices available, including Palm, PocketPC, and RIM devices; includes foreword by Rebecca Bace, internationally recognized intrusion detection and network security specialist; includes a case study guide - "PDA Defense - Palm's Choice for Enterprise"; explains why handheld security is largely about OS (Operating Systems); explores hacking problems; answers the questions - when does a handheld become an IT problem and what is a measured IT response?

From the Back Cover:

LOCK IN PDA SECURITY:
* Let an IT security expert help you assess the PDA threat to your business

* Maximize and protect the value of increasingly capable personal digital assistants to your organization

DOWNSIZE PDA RISKS. SUPERSIZE PDA REWARDS.

PDAs have moved into the workplace. More than 25 million of them will soon be accessing company networks. Are you prepared? If you’re an information technology or business executive, the time is right to size up the unique security risks these small, portable devices pose. This essential primer for those deploying, managing or using PDAs in the workplace will help you understand and address the challenges presented by this emerging set of technologies. Written by respected IT security experts, PDA Security, shows you how to:
* Assess the level of threat posed by PDAs in your organization
* Develop a measured and enforceable policy response to minimize the risk
* Understand the technical issues and defend against the threats PDAs pose to privacy, theft of sensitive information, system corruption, and other issues of network and data misuse
* Analyze secure solutions for all major handhelds -- Palm, PocketPC, and RIM
* Examine a case study on securing Palm for the work environment
* Learn why solutions almost always involve the operating system
* Discover what White-Hat Hacking reveals about vulnerabilities
* Find profitable ways to integrate PDAs into business plans and networks, while downsizing risks
* Get an insider’s preview of the future of handhelds -- the PCs of the early twenty-first century

With a Foreword by Rebecca Bace, internationally renowned intrusion-detection and network-security specialist and former member of the United States Department of Defense National Security Agency (NSA).

About the Author:

David Melnick currently holds the position of President of PDA Defense, the leading Enterprise PDA Security offering. Prior to PDA Defense, David helped to pioneer Internet-based financial transactional systems and security from the mid-'90s publishing multiple books on the execution of electronic commerce systems. As early as 1996, David was the focus of case studies in the area of Internet-based Electronic Commerce (Microsoft's Merchant Server Book - Ventana, 1996). And, by 1997 David had taken the lead author role in the first book published on Microsoft's Active Server Pages (QUE/Macmillan Publishing, 1997).

From the beginning of the 1990s David has worked to leverage technology and manage risk within the Financial Services industry starting with his work for one of the largest credit card processors. At GE's Credit Card companies, David worked with GE Corporate R&D to implement the first commercial application of Neural Network technology for risk management socring within the company, as well as later operationally working in both Fraud management and Risk Scoring Development groups. After GE, David's financial services work continued with the architecting of payment gateways currently in use by Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank. In the credit card processing area, David worked closely with Visa and Bank of America to pilot early tests with Smart Cards and emerging security standards such as SET 0.0 for taking transactions over the Internet.

Through a combination of published work, speaking engagements, and professional organization involvement.
