How many of you were able to participate in yesterday’s webinar, “Are You Smarter Than Your Phone?,” by Rebecca Herold sponsored by EDUCAUSE?  If you missed it but still are interested, EDUCAUSE has archived it for your viewing pleasure.

During the webinar, the speaker and attendees shared many great tips and links to resources and articles about the risks of storing data on smartphones, how often phones are stolen and lost, and tips for how protect and manage your data on your smartphones.  Check a few of the suggested links and articles out below:

  • Stolen Smartphones–including what to do if yours is lost or stolen.
  • Do you really need security features on your mobile device?
  • Checklist for securing your smartphone
  • Do you have one of those cool devices where you and your friend (with a similar device) can “bump” phones and share data?

I know I learned a lot yesterday!  Maybe it is time for me to go back to a regular cellphone?  Well… maybe not, but I will certainly be more aware going forward.  How about you?
