“Mobile Device Security: Threats, Governance, and Safeguards & A Security Analysis of the Mobile Device Environment”

by Larry G. Wlosinski

Abstract

Topic #1: Mobile Device Security: Threats, Governance, and Safeguards - Mobile computing devices have become a communications necessity for persons of all ages, but is everyone aware of the threats to their devices and the information (personal and possibly company) that exist. In this day and age it is critical that individuals and organizations address the concerns of a mobile society (e.g., BYOD – Bring your own device, BYOC – Bring your own cloud, CYOD – Choose your own device). In this presentation you will learn about the threats, vulnerabilities, risks, organizational governance concerns, and safeguards for mobile devices (both company and personal). Smart phones, tablets, as well as mobile device management programs and strategies will be discussed. The presentation is intended for security managers, directors, consultants, support staff, and other professionals.

Topic #2: A Security Analysis of the Mobile Device Environment - Mobile devices are not all the same. Features and capabilities are different and have been evolving with technological advances, and so have information and device security concerns. This presentation builds on the first by analyzing various mobile devices, management tools (e.g., MDM – Mobile Device Management), hacking and testing tools, and security and privacy products. Mobile architecture and configurations will be examined, risks will be reviewed by platform, policy advice and Mobile App concerns will be presented, and new terminology will be defined. This presentation is also intended for security managers, directors, consultants, support staff, and other professionals.

What: CharmSec is an informal, all-ages, citysec-style meetup of information security professionals in Baltimore.

Where: Please note the new location – Little Havana.

When: CharmSec 91 will be February 18th. That is a Thursday. It starts around 7:00PM. We stay until people get tired of hanging out. That seems to be about 3 or 4 hours, or until open-mic-night starts.

Why: We always enjoy the Q&A, refreshments, and downtime at other meetups. CharmSec is nothing but! And because Grant is coming tonight.
