About this talk

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.
