Mobile App & API Access Attacks: A New Security Frontier for Financial Services

Presented by

Joe Krull, Senior Analyst, Aite Group | Paul Dant, Senior Security Engineer, Arxan Technologies

About this talk

When it comes to finance, mobile banking or payments apps, maintaining customer trust is crucial to protecting brand equity and revenue. But according to recent analyst research, a majority of mobile finance apps lack the security controls and code hardening necessary to prevent applications from being compromised. And relying on legacy methods – like network or perimeter protection that is incapable of detecting these kinds of attacks – can have dire consequences. In this webinar, Aite Senior Analyst Joseph Krull and Arxan senior security engineer Paul Dant will discuss how the growing demand by mobile apps for API access is changing the security landscape, and what you can do to protect your organization from a costly breach (hint: it starts with protecting your applications). You’ll learn: -How easily mobile apps can be reverse engineered - the first step in circumventing traditional security approaches -How common app vulnerabilities and development mistakes can lead to data exposure -What’s necessary to implement a comprehensive mobile app security strategy
