As mobile adoption grows, so do security threats. Mobile devices are already an essential tool carried or worn by users worldwide and displacing conventional computers for everyday needs. With the number of smartphones and tablets on the increase, attacks on mobile devices are maturing. Gartner predicts that the focus of endpoint breaches will shift to smartphones and tablets in this year.

Mobile devices are affected by a range of security vulnerabilities, many of which are inherited from traditional attacks against web and desktop applications. However, several other classes of attack are specific to the mobile area and arise due to the way in which mobile applications are designed and the relatively unique entry points and attack surfaces that these applications create.

This course provides a technical review of the top security risks and controls to the iOS and Android mobile platforms, mobile apps development and integration to the enterprise that every IT professional needs to know.. By combining lectures with discussion and hands-on workshops, the course prepares the mindset of participants to review the proposed mobile security architecture for businesses.
