January 2019 Chapter Meeting

Posted by Administrator Friday, January 4, 2019

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals at Lidia's Restaurant.

Topic Summary:  Today's modern operating systems, like iOS and Android, are designed for ubiquitous and wireless access from anywhere in the world, and have very different use cases and security requirements compared with traditional PCs and servers. Mobile devices are on and connected 24/7, and often owned and managed by individuals, dramatically increasing the attack surface relative to PCs.  Malicious hackers have shifted much of their attention to these new operating systems that may provide a direct link into large companies with valuable assets worth stealing. Today, their methods are less focused on broad and annoying attacks on consumers and more on targeted attacks on specific individuals in specific organizations who have the right access levels to high-value assets. Well-researched social engineering exploits, combined with system vulnerabilities, make these attacks highly effective, even against smart and educated individuals.  In this discussion we will cover the landscape of cyber threats to mobile devices, attacker motivations and steps you can take to protect your mobile endpoint.

Speaker bio:  Cory Ronek is a member of the Mobile Security Specialist Team at Symantec based in Chicago.  Cory joined Symantec from the acquisition of Skycure, is responsible for the North Central Region, and has 15+ years industry & security experience.  Cory's Team is focused on helping customers solve the problem of securing enterprise mobile access to corporate data.
