With the popularity of Apple’s iPhone on the market, IT managers need to think about how to secure the iPhone when it comes into their networks. Smart policy is the name of the game. With that in mind, The Center for Internet Security recently released a security benchmark for the iPhone to help both administrators and end-users better secure data stored on the device.
In a document entitled the “CIS Security Configuration Benchmark for Apple iPhone,” CIS included 20 recommendations on subjects such as system settings and instructions on creating strong passwords. The advice, which applies to those who have not yet upgraded to iPhone 3GS, was created based on input from a diverse set of experts from the worlds of IT security, software developers and other fields.
eWEEK has selected some of the recommendations and included how to set your iPhone to be more secure.
