The stakes for mobile security get higher
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Mobile and embedded software systems are taking over the world. It is hard to find a device that has not become “smart” and is filled with software. This poses particular issues for software quality assurance, especially regarding security. Mobile software teams, users and stakeholders have historically underestimated the risk of mobile security threats.
As a result, vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers and hacks to gain access to mobile software devices are on the rise and will only continue unless the programming and testing staff take measures to prevent them.
On the 10th of July at 11:00 AM EDT Jon and XBOSoft will hold a webinar on mobile security testing. In this webinar we will discuss an overview of testing attack concepts with specific considerations for mobile software devices. The attack concepts will be examined within a supporting taxonomy of error types.
Jon Hagar has more than 30 years of experience in the mobile and embedded world and has recently published "Software Test Attacks to Break Mobile and Embedded Devices,” a book that focuses on attack based testing that can be used by individuals and teams.
"With mobile devices all around us, it is important to conduct mobile security testing, because the stakes get higher," says Jan Princen from XBOSoft.
