Two Mobile Security Resources

October 16, 2017
Although it should not have taken this long, I just ran across two relatively new resources for those doing Financial Services business in an environment infested with mobile devices.

If you are a mobile developer or if your organization is investing in mobile apps, I believe that you should [at a minimum] carefully and thoughtfully review the Study on Mobile Device Security by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Adversarial Tactics, Techniques & Common Knowledge Mobile Profile by Mitre.  Both seem like excellent, up-to-date overviews. The Mitre publication should be especially valuable for Architecture Risk Analysis and threat analysis in virtually any mobile context.
