Security for Mobile Devices
Securing your mobile devices in an international enterprise
20 June 2012 | RIBA, London, UK
About the seminar
The rapid introduction of next generation digital enterprises has led to many business-minded individuals eager to use new technologies in a professional context. The benefits of a corporation adopting this new phenomenon – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy – means that as a society we are embracing technology without fully understanding the long-term ramifications, leading to many security challenges.
The 'anytime, anywhere' business culture means that IT security managers will be forced to come to grips with the security consequences of their own decisions to virtualise their networks, leading to radically transforming traditional desktop environments.
You will find out:
- To what extent can a company go to ensure security without intruding on personal usage?
- What security vulnerabilities are the users exposed to?
- What are the best ways of working to ensure our workforce are protected from threats like malware and data theft?
- How can IT and Security Managers support growth for users with multiple devices?
Why should you attend?
Through a mixture of case studies, demonstrations and statements from senior industry and Government figures, the day will assist all interested parties in creating a new security policy to take advantage of this new way of working.
This seminar will:
- Provide you with a step-by-step tutorial to producing a robust security policy
- Increase your awareness of how social engineers operate (covering detection and reaction) with the help of practical demonstrations
- Show you how to reduce the risks associated with user carelessness
- Offer you an understanding of the Government’s approach to mobile security
