Mobile applications enable new threats and attacks which introduce significant risks to the enterprise, and many custom applications contain significant vulnerabilities that are unknown to the team that developed them. Considering the number of mobile applications available in the Google Play and Apple AppStore is nearing 1.5 million and vulnerabilities are skyrocketing it is imperative to perform typical application security practices. But, how is mobile different?
This two-day, hands-on course enables students to understand how easily mobile devices and applications can be successfully attacked. They will learn how to identify, avoid and remediate common vulnerabilities by walking through a threat analysis and learning critical security areas such as those identified in the OWASP Top Ten Mobile Risks and Controls. Using state-of-the-art testing tools, students will learn how to secure mobile devices across the enterprise. Students will be able to choose from iOS or Android hands-on labs throughout the course, while they learn how easily the bad guy can compromise applications and the data they contain.
