Title: Mobile-App Addiction: Threat to Security?
Published: November 01, 2011

Nobody knows what the full impact of this transformation will be, but it's clear that our embrace of, and reliance on, cheap and easily accessible information presents unprecedented security implications - the enormity of which we have yet to grasp.
