ISSA KC - Chapter Meeting - Mobile Security

When:  Jan 24, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (CT)

Today's modern operating systems, like iOS and Android, are designed for ubiquitous and wireless access from anywhere in the world, and have very different use cases and security requirements compared with traditional PCs and servers. Mobile devices are on and connected 24/7, and often owned and managed by individuals, dramatically increasing the attack surface relative to PCs.  Malicious hackers have shifted much of their attention to these new operating systems that may provide a direct link into large companies with valuable assets worth stealing. Today, their methods are less focused on broad and annoying attacks on consumers and more on targeted attacks on specific individuals in specific organizations who have the right access levels to high-value assets. Well-researched social engineering exploits, combined with system vulnerabilities, make these attacks highly effective, even against smart and educated individuals.  In this discussion we will cover the landscape of cyber threats to mobile devices, attacker motivations and steps you can take to protect your mobile endpoint.
