I will be attending Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of this month (February 2012). In particular I will be speaking at the security forum on a subject close to my heart…

An increasing number of companies are opening corporate networks and data to consumer mobile devices, as employees demand to bring their own smartphones and tablets to work. However, consumer mobile technology is generally not as secure and manageable as required by the enterprise.

Too many companies make the mistake of trying to stop the influx of consumer IT. What new mobile platforms will your organisation contend with? What built-in security models do they provide? What vulnerabilities are they exposed to? How rigorous is the scrutiny of the official application markets? Is the corporate data stored in these devices safe?

Details of the panel are here.

If you are going to MWC then come along and say hello at 1330hrs Wednesday 29th February, Mobile Security Forum,  Hall 7, Auditorium C.
