    Briefing

    ** This is a past event **

    This event will look at the tools needed to protect mobile devices and assess the multi-factorial ways in which to secure data stored or transmitted by applications.

Mobile devices and in particular smartphones offer an extraordinary depth and breadth of opportunity to both individuals and enterprises. Whether one considers that by 2020 mobile subscription estimates exceed 70% of the world’s population or that in 2017 60% or more of UK businesses report using cloud services and close to 50% report the regular use of personal devices for work, the push to realise the benefits offered by mobile devices is now mainstream.

At the same, the flexibility, potency and diversity of mobile devices, their ecosystems and their patterns of use present a threat landscape far wider than that of traditional desktop or laptop computers. A near permanently connected (often over public networks) device with multiple network interfaces and multiple sub-systems such as GPS or cameras offer an expanding range of attack vectors just as the growing use of these devices in business or personal contexts is raising the level of loss that a successful attack can precipitate.

It should surprise no one that the response to these risks needs to be multi-factorial. From education and awareness building, through policies and procedures, threat intelligence, monitoring and device management systems to securing the way data is stored or transmitted by applications - all have a role in assuring that the benefits of mobile devices can be realised safely.

This event will look at the tools needed to protect mobile devices and assess the multi-factorial ways in which to secure data stored or transmitted by applications.
