Topic: The Hidden Risks of Mobile Applications to Your Organization
Mobile applications are becoming a major security threat to organizations and they don’t even know it yet. While many people talk about the potential risks of mobile devices, often the true impact of these risks is not understood. In his presentation, attendees will see real-world examples of how mobile applications can be written to be malicious and explore the damage a skilled criminal can cause. While many of these risks do not have simple fixes, Stickley will provide advice for organizations to reduce their exposure and analyze emerging risks, such as BYOD as part of an ongoing risk management program including what to look for in application settings when downloading new applications to a mobile device, the type of intrusions in the current mobile technology landscape, how to best educate their organization’s internal employees, and best practices and policies for organizations to reduce their risk exposure.
