Content is increasingly delivered to consumers via mobile application interfaces due to the flexibility in program and service delivery options that platform provides, but that flexibility also leads to more vulnerabilities when not coded correctly. At the Global CISO Forum, CISOs will be challenged to design and defend mobile applications during a presentation entitled "Building a Secure Mobile Application: A Gamification.” Leading the game will be Sameer Shelke, Aujas’s co-founder, COO, and CTO. Sameer, who has delivered this gaming demonstration to audiences worldwide, says, “Games eliminate our fear of failure and improve our chances of success” while increasing the chances that what is learned will be retained. According to one previous participant, Sameer Ratolikar, the CISO of the Bank of India, “The game concept was pretty interesting, especially the execution and development. For a CISO community, it really gave a feeling of security engineering and how to look at security from a business angle.” According to Shelke, this is one of the main benefits of learning through gaming, because more and more, the role of CISO requires a deep understanding of the technical side of security, as well as business. The challenge of the game is to tackle the challenge of building a new product while keeping the bottom line and security in mind.
EC-Council’s Global CISO Forum aims to bring together CISO s and other high-level information security professionals from around the world to discus their challenges and best practices. The event is by invitation only in order to ensure that the discussions can remain high-level and confidential. CISOs will also be discussing topics ranging from internally branding and selling a high-performing information security program to managing security with an outsourced cloud vendor. Speakers include RSA’s CISO, Eddie Schwartz; Justin Somaini, Yahoo’s CISO; Richard Rushing, Motorola Mobility’s CISO and many others.
