As mobile enables data and applications to get pushed farther to the edge of the enterprise, whether collecting data in the field, managing systems in the plant, or accessing corporate applications from the road, its impact will only increase. This presentation will summarize experiences performing security assessments and remediation for a wide range of mobile applications and technologies, and is based on the best-selling book Hacking Exposed: Mobile. Varying perspectives on mobile security will be considered, including organizational IT, application developers, and end-users. Real-world attacks and countermeasures will be covered to highlight the areas of greatest risk.
