Many of the myths that I come across appear to offer panaceas that are comforting to the status quo. The idea that the newest iPhone or Samsung device will automatically make enterprise mobility safe. If enterprise data is encrypted then it is perfectly safe. If we put a wall around our apps and data then no one will be able to get in. These are comforting myths.

We are combining the discussion of mobile application security myths with actual trends being tracked by an independent analyst firm and a moderated discussion of common enterprise questions about implementing successful application security programs. Hope you are able to join us.
