Mobile Application Security

What: Mobile Application Security
When: Tuesday, January 31, 2017, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The mobile application industry is growing at an explosive pace, yet security issues of mobile applications are lagging behind. Incidents of mobile application hacking have increased exponentially as attackers and attacks have evolved, using both new and well-known methods of attack to infiltrate. The impact on businesses and end-users is exponentially growing. With more than 1.5 million apps available in the two main app stores, Apple and Android, and hundreds of billions of downloads to date, the mobile landscape has quickly become the main playground for hackers and attackers. Join Igor Matlin and others in a discussion focused on incorporating security into your mobile application development.
Presentation by:
Igor Matlin, Checkmarx Director, Solutions Architect,
Developer, traveler, mobile technology junkie...and over 20 years of technical experience in high-tech companies as a software engineer and technical lead. Prior to joining Checkmarx as a Senior Solutions Architect, I worked on mobile technologies at Myriad Group, a leading mobile software company, and mobile browser developer Novarra, acquired by Nokia in 2010.
