Spyware for Sale: The Growing Threat to Mobile Security

Presented by

Richard Melick, Director of Threat Insights and Product Strategy

About this talk

The monetized world of cybercrime is not a new concept, and until recently the highly technical malware did not reach into the mobile world. But like everything else, that has changed. Cybercriminals see the widely adopted frontier of mobile as a valuable target for increasingly advanced malware and services, and for the right price, are ready to sell to anyone. Advanced mobile malware, like spyware, is no longer a product just for nation states and deep-pocketed criminals as it sits on the open markets available for purchase with a simple credit card, cryptocurrency, or even donations. The threat to enterprises, their data and employees, has increased significantly due to this market evolution, and spyware is the main course. Join representatives of Zimperium’s zLab Advanced Threat Research team as they reveal the growing marketspace for spyware, how enterprises can stay aware of new and emerging threats, and a demo of commercially available mobile spyware in action.
