07 Jun 11. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Pocket Guide Mobile Application Now Available. The Department of Defense announced today it has released a new mobile application for health care professionals, the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Pocket Guide. This application, developed by the National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), gives providers a comprehensive, quick reference that includes clinical practice guidelines for assessing and treating service members and veterans who have sustained a mild traumatic brain injury, commonly referred to as a concussion. “This new tool is about providing clinicians with quick and convenient access to clinical guidelines for concussion care. It not only allows the clinician to provide evidenced-based care but maximizes time spent with the patient,” said Katherine Helmick, deputy director for traumatic brain injury. The mobile application is free and available for download on Android smart phones at https://market.android.com/details?id=org.t2health.mtbi . Hard copies of the pocket guide can be ordered by contacting the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-870-9244.
13 Jun 11. Panda Security released a report on the history, current state and future of mobile malware which aims to raise awareness of the threats affecting mobile devices as well as provide tips individuals can follow to avoid falling victim to mobile threats.
“One of the major challenges security vendors face is user mobility,” said Luis Corrons, technical director of PandaLabs. “Enhancing the security of cell phones — through anti-malware, data protection, management and security audit functions — is a major challenge for any security department, and we must tackle this threat as soon as possible in order to help protect users’ information and businesses. Even though cell phone malware is not a priority for cyber-crooks yet, we are starting to see the first major attacks on these platforms. We predict that the next few months will see significant growth in cell phone attacks, especially on Google’s Android operating system. Lack of security awareness among cell phone users and carelessness are two of the most important risk factors for smartphones. It is extremely important to understand that a smartphone is far more than just a phone and should be treated more like a computer due to the valuable information it stores. To protect your mobile device, the CNCCS offers a series of best practices. (Source: Len Zuga/(IN)SECURE Magazine)
