Title: Mobile Device Risk Assessment

With the consumerization of IT, organizations everywhere are feeling the pressure to incorporate a broader spectrum of mobile devices into the corporate environment.  Meanwhile, the threat environment for mobile devices is unique and changing, and security capabilities are lagging behind mobile functionality.  In order to successfully incorporate a broader variety of mobile devices into the corporate environment, organizations must thoroughly assess the risks and develop a risk mitigation plan.

This session will review available risk assessment models, unique considerations when conducting a risk assessment for mobile devices, as well as a case study of a recent mobile device risk assessment.
