Folks headed to InnoTech San Antonio on Wednesday April 17th, 2013 should stop by the Denim Group booth and say howdy. Also, I’ll be giving an updated version of my Smart Phones Dumb Apps talk at 1:00pm. The abstract for that talk is:
Enterprises are targeting both internal users and customers with smartphone applications for platforms such as Apple iPhone and Google Android. Many of these applications are constructed without fully considering the associated security implications of their deployment. Breaches can impact both users as well as the enterprise distributing the application as attackers take advantage of expanded access to sensitive data and network services. This talk discusses emerging threats associated with deploying smartphone applications and provides an overview of the threat modeling process. The presentation then walks example applications from an attacker’s perspective demonstrating the sort of information they are able to extract allowing for more advanced attacks.
So if your organization is building – or using – mobile applications on platforms like Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad) you probably want to drop by. This is a fun, interactive presentation with a lot of examples that helps demonstrate why mobile security isn’t just about MDM and dealing with BYOD. You also need to pay attention to the applications getting deployed on these mobile operating systems if you want to protect both your organization’s and your customers’ data.
