Columbia, MD (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
The trend of enterprise mobility is not slowing and neither is the growth of risks associated with it. Mobile security expert and technology executive Cleve Adams will discuss the newest types of risks discovered and debate security options at the AGC Partners' 9th Annual InfoSec and Emerging Growth Conference to be held February 25 at the Westin San Francisco Market Street (50 3rd St, San Francisco).
A Google study shows that only 1.4% of Android OS devices are running up-to-date fixes for malicious malware and software bugs. According to a recent enterprise mobility survey put out by MobileIron, 53.8% of companies currently have a BYOD policy. However, the mobility budget is often not handled by the IT department which leaves the question, who is taking care of mobile device security?
Adams, CEO of mobile device security firm AirPatrol, will explain risks that mobile devices pose to enterprises and how to prepare. With BYOD gaining popularity, there has been a shift in interest to innovative companies that focus on mobility, information security, cloud computing, services, and risk management policy. The format of the event allows attendees the opportunity to meet one another in an up-close and personal setting, exchange ideas, and learn the latest trends affecting the emerging growth technology universe.
Adams has more than two decades of software industry experience, with a focus on mobile and wireless. An experienced speaker, Adams is regularly featured at the Harvard Alumni Association and investor conferences. Adams’ position of CEO at AirPatrol brings a spotlight on financial, healthcare and technology enterprise markets.
