We are moving more sensitive data into mobile applications than ever before. However, at what cost to security? This talk provides an overview of how mobile apps are being attacked and what defenses exist.

As we surpass 2.5 billion smartphones in use worldwide, mobile application security is no longer a theoretical discussion. Mobile applications are suffering from major data breaches at a staggering rate. Mobile applications present a different set of challenges than traditional web apps. As such, we must prepare accordingly.

This talk is an introduction to attack and defense methods for both builder and breakers of Android and iOS applications. We will explore a number of topics that will better arm you to assess and improve the security of mobile applications. We will talk about the system security of Android and iOS. We will cover common security issues in mobile applications. You will learn about the available mobile application security controls. Finally, we also give an overview of how to test for security issues in mobile applications.

This session is intended for anyone involved in the development of mobile applications.
