    We are now living in a mobile-first world – a fact which has not escaped the attentions of malicious actors looking to turn profit on personal and corporate data. The challenge now is how to navigate the mobile security minefield in order to unlock the real value of mobile. This minefield is littered with strains of malware intended to infect and destruct, while ransomware has been infiltrating organisations and locking operations in demand for bitcoin sums big and small.

    As organisations know, mobile devices make an efficient entry point into the organisation, with measures having been ramped up in recent times to protect this specific endpoint - two-factor authentication, biometrics, and privileged identity management are just some of the protection techniques deployed by organisations. The need for organisations to identify, monitor and detect threats to applications and devices has never been more important – but how can organisations balance this requirement with other key areas such as productivity?

    Join IBM’s Stephen McCormack for answers, insights and solutions to your mobile security challenges – this webinar will give you valuable insights into areas such as identity management, criminal reverse engineering and fraud. In a world where security professionals live by the mantra of ‘when, not if’, this exclusive webinar enables you to ask your security questions and pose your security challenges to enable you to understand and effectively deploy mobile security.
