The Presentation

Owasp logo normal.jpg
Social networking and mobility are two of four forces found in "GartnerĀs Predicts 2012: Four Forces Combine to Transform the IT Landscape special report (". We can personally attest to working with several businesses that have increased spending on developing mobile (IOS and Android) applications integrated with Facebook and Twitter presence to engage and interact their target audience. The convergence of two - Mobile applications using Facebook platform for authentication referrals, payments and twitter API to share ideas, opinions and status from within the application - introduces unique trust problems, data access and repudiation risks not planned for by most development teams.
The talk covers mobile application security, focusing on social media integration, for both IOS and Android. The two speakers - a security consultant assessing several mobile apps every month and principal security architect at a Fortune 500 responsible for mobile footprint security _ brings diverse insight and sometimes contradictory views to this talk. The audience will walk away with an understanding of mobile application risks on different platforms and how to successfully design a security program focused on developing mobile applications in a large organization, related to emerging threats with facebook and twitter integration. The talk will include live demonstration and interactive participation to keep the audience engaged.
