With over 3 million apps now deployed in the Apple and Google Play app stores, the importance of mobile application security assessments is at an all-time high. With business critical mobile apps handling payment card, healthcare, and financial information on end user devices, organizations are vulnerable to an entirely new class of mobile software vulnerabilities. As the bad guys shift their focus towards attacking mobile applications, defenders are struggling to keep up.

Join Eric Johnson, contributing author of the new DEV531: Defending Mobile Applications Security Essentials course, to learn about some common issues often found in mobile application vulnerability assessments, such as local data storage, inter-process communication (IPC), and broken cryptography.
