In Plain Sight: The App Vulnerability Epidemic

04 Jun 2019, 12:00 - 12:30

Talking Tactics

The world runs on mobile, hybrid and web apps. With millions in use, they are essential to conducting business effectively and safely. The common belief is that these endpoints are simple clients that do not contain sensitive data, since valuable corporate data resides solely on servers and is well protected – this belief couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Join Aaron Lint, Chief Scientist at Arxan and Stephan Schweizer, Chief Product Officer at AdNovum, to hear: 

  • Why Magecart-style web app attacks are so effective 
  • Results from the latest penetration testing research documenting how 30 out of 30 mobile financial services apps across Europe and the United States are left woefully unprotected
  • How AdNovum uses Arxan to protect mobile banking, insurance and government apps

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn just how vulnerable web and mobile apps are to reverse engineering attacks
  2. Understand what can be exposed and what’s at risk when apps are attacked
  3. Realise that protection technology alone is not sufficient to truly defend against attacks without threat detection
  4. Learn how app protection and threat detection can effectively be integrated into your DevSecOps environment
  5. Determine the correct path when getting started to protect your mobile and web apps based on resources
