Web Conference Overview:

Now that we have figured out BYOD and Cloud, the question has once again become ‘What is the next new threat?’ The next best bet? Given the proliferation of power and storage in mobile devices we will find ourselves once again in a world of insecurity. Yes, in theory we have addressed the issue of lost or stolen devices (maybe), but what about the next round of issues? Could it be centered around the security of the software?

The very nature of mobile devices make them incredibly easy to add and create software, but where did that software come from? Is the software trustworthy and well written? Who knows.

Join us on August 27 to find out the answers to these questions and more.
