NowSecure #MobSec5

Welcome to your RSA Conference 2017 edition of #MobSec5. This year’s conference included a slew of mobile security talks as part of the Mobile & IoT Security track. You’ll find a list of those talks, along with recordings and slides, on the RSA Conference website.

Your heaping helping of mobile security reading material for your trip back home includes:
  • History repeats itself? Google says no known exploits of Stagefright in the wild
  • Ultimate espionage device gains entry to members-only club
  • Still no cybersecurity EO, but maybe before the end of the month
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, be good, and stay safe.
