Erik Peterson, Director, Product Strategy, Veracode
What: With the growing rate of enterprises allowing mobile devices into the workplace, it’s not surprising that security risks are also increasing. Modern mobile applications run on mobile devices that have the functionality of a desktop or laptop running a general purpose operating system. In this respect, many of the risks are similar to those of traditional spyware. Web applications are frequently the weak link in enterprise security because they must be available 24/7 and offer data access to customers, employees, suppliers, among others. Join Veracode and an expert in mobile technology from Thomson Reuters as they explore different solutions that enterprises can take when attacking application security strategies for their businesses. Discussion topics include:
- Understanding how much risk you’re introducing with new Internet-connected apps
- Understanding what you can do to mitigate hacks and data loss facilitated by vulnerabilities in your critical software applications
- How to evolve your systems, policies, and development strategy with the pace of change in the app world to stay secure in the future.
When: Thursday, June 7, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. ET
