Mobile App Security in a BYOD Organization [Webinar]

They’re two trends on a collision course: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobile app security. These days, just about every company is letting employees use their own preferred devices so they can be as happy and productive as possible, yet many are struggling to keep the apps on those devices secure.

How do you prevent your organization’s mobile apps from being the next big data privacy breach? To help reconcile both sides of the issue, New Relic is sponsoring a free VentureBeat webinar featuring top mobile experts who’ll share hard-won tips and best practices to keep your organization’s mobile apps rock solid, while avoiding punitive lockdowns that could hamper the user experience.

The issue can’t be ignored: If you’re developing mobile apps—internally or with hired developers—you could be putting your users and your company at risk. Even the most popular and successful apps can have man-in-the-middle vulnerabilities and poor data storage practices. Gartner estimates that in the next three years, 75 percent of mobile security breaches will be the result of mobile application misconfiguration.

This free one-hour webinar will help attendees:

  • Understand the current threat landscape, including mobile malware and app reverse engineering.
  • Learn how to retrain security teams to securely develop mobile apps.
  • Target mobile security strategy to protect not just the apps and the data but also the device.
  • Examine ways to add security at the app level and provide mobile access to business apps safely.

Moderated by editor and analyst Wendy Schuchart, the event speakers include

  • Sky Sharma, CIO/CKO, Information Systems and Technology Branch, United States Air Force
  • John Millican, former CISO, Expedia and Hotwire
  • Tyler Shields, senior analyst, Forrester Research
  • Sean Wisdom, Director, Global Mobility Solutions Marketing, Dell
