Abstract

This paper reports on a survey to investigate the behaviour and
assumptions of smartphone users, with reference to the security practices adopted
by such users. The primary objective was to shed light on the level of information
security awareness in smartphone users and determine the extent of sensitive
information such users typically hold on these mobile devices.
