ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Mobile / Web App Security: How Do You Know You’ve Got it Right?
Increasingly, organizations across all industries are using mobile and web applications to attract new customers and conduct business. But bad actors are also aware of these lucrative channels and are continually looking for ways to exploit them. So, how do organizations know if their app and network security is sufficient to protect their business from data breaches? Can their apps protect and detect the latest reverse engineering attacks? Do they even know if their existing defenses are working?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have been able to help their organizations rethink their mobile and web app protection strategy.
Discussion topics will include:
- What types of attacks are you commonly seeing via mobile and web apps today?
- What types of protection do you have in place to defend your apps, critical data and brand?
- How do you even know if your defenses are working as advertised?
- How have you integrated app security in your DevOps process?
- Has your organization thought through how they would handle a data breach and what the costs would be?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight is Matt Clemens, Technical Director for Security Engineering at Arxan Technologies. Matt will share the results of Arxan-commissioned research conducted by Aite Group that uncovered critical vulnerabilities among mobile financial apps, and offer practical advice for implementing a comprehensive app security strategy.
