So you've heard about the Security BSides St John's 2011 event and wonder if you'll sign up to attend? Well if you do you'll be able to take in a variety of information security talks from leaders in the field, while having the opportunity to meet other information security practitioners, and researchers. In this week's 'Reasons to attend Security BSides St John's 2011' I'm highlighting Mark Nunnikhoven's talk entitled "iPads: Love’em, Hate’em, You’re Going to Have to Deal With’em":
iPads: Love’em, Hate’em, You’re Going to Have to Deal With’em
Mark Nunnikhoven, Security Architect
All the other executives have them!
But...I want it.
The iPad currently owns the tablet market. Because of that dominance—and whatever your organizations motivation—sooner or later you’re going to have to figure out how to secure iPads (and iPhones) within your environment.
From connectivity, to data storage, to apps, to support, to media management, and beyond there’s a mountain of issues to deal with. You’re going to have to figure out how to address these issues, and the sooner the better.
This talk will help get you started. Together we’ll walk through some of the pitfalls, problems, and challenges associated with these (and similar) devices.
With the right approach is it possible to minimize the risks these devices pose without significantly altering the great user experience they provide.
