Mobile Security: From a Management Perspective

Welcome to a growing market! By 2013 there will be a penetration grade of mobile devices of 112,46%, this means that every person will have 1.13 mobile devices.

Welcome to a growing market! By 2013 there will be a penetration grade of mobile devices of 112,46%, this means that every person will have 1.13 mobile devices. This indicates that there is a bigger and faster growing market ahead of us than the Internet (e-business, e-banking, e-payments, etc). Mobile penetration will be higher than desktop penetration by 2013. Mobile business is getting more and more important by the day.
Today mobile suppliers, developers and implementers are mainly looking at functionality and features. Their mobile challenges are: network connectivity, battery life, bring your own device (byod), commingling personal and business data, ownership & revocation and costs. But where is the security challenge? Everything has to go fast, anywhere, anytime and anyhow, but are we still aware of the insecurities, risks and threats?


Steven Ackx is a director of PwC Technology with extensive experience in Operational Risk Management, IT Security, Information Security and Mobile/Payments. He has been involved in projects on a strategic, tactical and operational level.
Today he is leading the PwC Technology offering on Mobile Security and is involved in Mobile Business/Payments.
He started his career in the Media/Movie-theatre sector, where he worked on the introduction of new technologies, like e-payments, e-ticketing and e-business. After this he joined Ubizen where he continued his career starting as a security pre-sales consultant/engineer. Two years later he was promoted to technical product manager of two high-volume security products, which were developed in-house by Ubizen, the EasyPayment and MultiSecure products (DMZShield and TrustedChannel). After being a technical product manager at Ubizen for more than two years, he worked for Ascure as an Information Security Consultant, Operations Director and Director Ascure Academy.

  • The Dangerous Misperception of Ransomware The Dangerous Misperception of Ransomware Harlan Carvey, Security Analysis Senior Consultant, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Research Team Recorded: May 5 2016 61 mins
    The proliferation of Ransomware has ushered in a new wave of extortionware and a new generation of malware attacks. While these types of attacks are not new, they have become more insidious and sophisticated, growing in popularity in concert with the expansion of electronic payment systems such as bitcoin. In April, the US and Canada both issued formal warnings and suggestions, but how much that is reported about this new malware is true? Are we being naïve in our efforts to block these Ransomware attacks?

    Attend this webcast to learn not only the truth behind Ransomware attacks, but also how to protect your organization utilizing a holistic and unifying visibility into your network and endpoints. Secureworks Security Analysis Senior Consultant, Harlan Carvey will answer vital questions about the nature of Ransomware and provide more insight into the actors, their methods, and their motivations:

    - What is Ransomware?
    - How does it proliferate?
    - How do I detect and block it?
    - How do I know what systems are compromised or how the attacker got in?
    - Do I pay the ransom if I am attacked?
    - How do I ensure that I don’t become a victim (again)?
  • The Keys to a Secure Hybrid Cloud Environment The Keys to a Secure Hybrid Cloud Environment Paul Fletcher, Cyber Security Evangelist, Alert Logic Recorded: May 5 2016 59 mins
    Despite increasing cloud adoption in IT departments, many organizations are still concerned with data security. Those concerns are amplified by the loss of physical control over data and the potential for mismanagement of those assets when migrating to the cloud. As a result, this is often the top barrier to cloud deployment. However, with cloud innovations growing exponentially, the new wave of security solutions is breaking down those barriers.

    In this webinar, Alert Logic cyber security evangelist, Paul Fletcher, will provide you with insight on how to get over hybrid cloud security hurdles and discuss:

    • Common misconceptions surrounding hybrid cloud security
    • Key strategies to secure a hybrid cloud environment
    • Solutions to security threats within multiple hybrid cloud environments
  • Rock the CASB Part 3: Enabling Secure BYOD w/Cloud Access Security Brokers Rock the CASB Part 3: Enabling Secure BYOD w/Cloud Access Security Brokers Rich Campagna, VP, Products Salim Hafid, Product Marketing Manager Recorded: May 5 2016 61 mins
    As organizations migrate to services like Google Apps and Office 365, there is a growing need to secure data both in the cloud and across mobile devices. With CASB, IT administrators can distinguish between managed and unmanaged mobile devices without invasive agents, yet are able to limit access to sensitive data using granular policy controls. CASBs even enable control over data once downloaded to an end-user's device. Join Bitglass and (ISC)2 on May 5, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for the final part of our three-part webinar series, where we discuss the drawbacks of existing mobile security solutions and the ease of deploying a CASB to secure BYOD without hassles.
  • Cloud data warehouses: Why simple is better Cloud data warehouses: Why simple is better Evan Schuman, VentureBeat Recorded: May 5 2016 61 mins
    The first rule of data analytics for fast-growing companies? Measure all things. When putting in place a robust data analytics strategy to go from measurement to insight, you’ve got lots of options for tools -- from databases and data warehouse options to new “big data” tools such as Hadoop, Spark, and their related components. But tools are nothing if you don’t know how to put them to use.

    We’re going to get some real talk from practitioners in the trenches and learn how people are bringing together new big data technologies in the cloud to deliver a truly world class data analytics solution. One such practitioner is Celtra, a fast-growing provider of creative technology for data-driven digital display advertising. We’re going to sit down with the Director of Engineering, Analytics at Celtra to learn how they built a high-performance data processing pipeline using Spark + a cloud data warehouse, enabling them to process over 2 billion analytics events per day in support of dashboards, applications, and ad hoc analytics.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Build a simpler, faster solution to support your data analytics
    * Support diverse reporting and ad hoc analytics in one system
    * Take advantage of the cloud for flexibility, scaling, and simplicity

    Speakers:

    * Evan Schuman, Moderator, VentureBeat
    * Grega Kešpret, Director of Engineering, Analytics, Celtra
    * Jon Bock, VP of Marketing and Products, Snowflake

  • Securing the Foundation to Secure the Cloud Securing the Foundation to Secure the Cloud J. Trent Adams, Director of Ecosystem Security, PayPal Recorded: May 5 2016 42 mins
    Secure clouds don't exist in a vacuum. The very nature of a secure cloud relies on effective standardized, interoperable, and scalable Internet security. As the cloud metaphor displaces the concept of proprietary point-to-point networked servers, the key to its value can be found in the interoperability of service protocols. Securing these connections requires understanding and deploying standards such as TLS HSTS, CT, CSP, DMARC, and FIDO. Each protocol addresses specific security concerns encountered when you extend your security perimeter to include external cloud services. Developing and deploying technologies like these requires a holistic view of the security landscape, and working within a robust Internet security ecosystem.

    Key Talking Points:

    - Cloud security relies on standardized Internet security protocols.

    - Developing Internet security protocols requires multistakeholder involvement.

    - Key areas of focus include securing: transport, content, communication, and authentication.

    - Case studies presented in developing CT, CSP, DMARC, FIDO, and TLS 1.3

    - Internet security is constantly evolving; adapt or perish.
