Most organizations lack a defense-in-depth strategy to address the evolving mobile threat landscape. Their app vetting is inadequate; their mobile incident response lifecycle is immature; and they overestimate traditional threats while underestimating new threats. This webinar dives into the hacker's mind to establish best practices for securing corporate mobile data.

This presentation will review best practices and strategies for controlling the dissemination of data on mobile devices by analyzing current mobile attack vectors including:

  • - Device compromises that expose ActiveSync email and more
  • - Mobile App threats including malware and risky behaviors that exfiltrate data
  • - Network attacks that target mobile device sessions and intercept enterprise data
  • - Outline a defense-in-depth approach for mitigating data loss on mobile devices
