Items’ GROUP #1 with average value 7.50 points (7 points of system protection, 8 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, compliance but there are publicly known techniques to access the data including forensics one where system protection level means – root/jailbreak is required but not possible without wiping device data, and own protection level means – compliance encryption algorithms ‘n’ security mechanisms implementations.
