London, UK (PRWEB UK) 23 October 2012

MIS Training Institute announces its 2nd Mobile & Smart Device Security Conference taking place in London, UK from the 5-6 December 2012. Leading security experts will explore flexible strategies to securely address today’s enterprise mobility challenges.

Corporate IT departments continue to support platforms that their workforces are asking for. The key for security professionals is to change the focus from which devices to enable or not, to securely getting the company’s greatest asset, corporate data, out to end users. Building on the success of the inaugural Mobile & Smart Device Security Conference in December 2011, this year’s event has a specific focus on providing practical solutions for building, securing & auditing enterprise mobile applications. This is the premier gathering for IT security professionals who want to network, exchange ideas and tackle best practices around securing mobile data in an increasingly consumerised environment.

  • Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer from F-Secure presents a keynote address on Mobile Malware; reality or hype? Mikko will cut through the media hype around the mobile malware threat to summarise the true situation right now. Learn how criminals are making money using mobile malware and how to increase awareness of the risks of mobile devices across the various platforms that are available.
  • Dragan Pendić, Chief Security Architect at Diageo explains how Diageo developed a risk management approach which minimised the risk of data leakage on mobile devices. Dragan will compare the risks of manufacturer versus user-installed apps and demonstrate how to reduce leakage via the OS, malware and your users.
