  • April 25, 2013

SANS Institute today announced the agenda for its second annual Mobile Device Security Summit taking place May 30 - 31, 2013 in Anaheim, CA. This year's summit will address some of the most challenging mobile security issues with a special focus on bring your own device (BYOD) and mobile vulnerabilities and exploits. Top security experts and practitioners will detail proven approaches to securing BYOD and share how they developed and gained management support for their plans.

"Mobile device security is a growing and constantly changing challenge. Numerous software and device types continue to make their way into organizations thus blurring the line between personal and professional device usage and exposing organizations to risks," said Kevin Johnson, summit co-chair and SANS Senior Instructor. "In this new consumer-driven world of smart phones, tablets and mobile applications, enterprise security approaches must change. SANS' Mobile Device Security Summit will provide information on lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid in implementing an effective and efficient management and security program."

Agenda highlights for the Mobile Device Security Summit include:

  • Mobile Malfeasance: Exploring Trends in Dangerous Mobile Code (keynote address)
  • SANS 8 Mobile Device Security Steps (keynote address)

The summit will feature presentations, panels and networking opportunities with top mobile device security experts including Jason Haddix, Director of Pen Testing at HP, Tom Eston, Manager, Profiling & Penetration Team at SecureState, Scott Gordon, CISSP, Vice President at ForeScout, Clint Adams, Director of Mobile Technology Solutions at Fiberlink.
