Mobile Phone Handset Security

The data and security of smart phone handsets can be compromised in a variety of ways if suitable security systems, settings and best practices are not implemented.

EBM’s security team offers two key services regarding handset security:


Configuration Review

Security configurations vary from handset model to model. EBM offer a thorough check of the handset to test whether its security configuration is set up in line with the best industry practices.


Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is a method for identifying vulnerabilities in a mobile device and exploiting such vulnerabilities. Our controlled testing principally covers attack scenarios including:

“Lost-Phone” – a test of how vulnerable the handset is to data and information loss in the event of handset loss.

“Man-in-the-Middle Attack” – a test of the vulnerability of the handset to a technical attack by a malicious third party.

“Socially Engineered Attack” – a test of the vulnerability of the handset support systems to socially engineered attacks by a malicious third party.

Following the rigorous testing full reports are delivered to the client outlining vulnerabilities found and recommended remedial action.

Clients requiring Mobile Phone Handset Security services typically include key principals and senior management of organizations and individuals who travel frequently.
