Ben and I are heading down to InfoSecurity Europe at Earl’s Court again this week. We’re producing another special edition podcast series for 361 Degrees, focusing on the topic of mobile security. This is quite possibly one of the biggest issues at the forefront of the development of mobile.
Simply ask any Chief Security Officer at a Fortune 100 company how he/she feels about their employees using Android phones and the chances are, they’ll come out in spots and have to be rushed off for immediate treatment. But it’s not just Android that’s vulnerable. When you stop and take a close look, there are clear vulnerabilities throughout the ecosystem. It’s all very well issuing patches for silly programming mistakes (I’m looking at you, Apple), but if people don’t bother updating their devices regularly, they shouldn’t be surprised at being targeted either deliberately or automatically.
So Ben and I will be aiming to talk with a number of key players about what both consumers and enterprises should be doing to better protect themselves.
If you’d like to be included as a spokesperson, we’re recording between 10am-12pm this coming Thursday at InfoSecurity Europe. Drop me a note and we’ll try and get you involved! (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
