NowSecure #MobSec5

Hi,
How was your week? NowSecure had a big one. We both announced mobile security veteran Alan Snyder’s appointment as NowSecure CEO and hosted an all-company summit in Chicago. Read a blog post from Alan wherein he explains why he joined NowSecure and what lies ahead.
This week’s digest of the mobile security news that matters–#MobSec5–includes:
  • WebView security enhancements coming in Android O
  • Surge in Android banking trojans attributed to a single post on an Internet forum
  • “Extensive use of mobile platforms” increases the cost of a compromise by $8.80 per record
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, be good, and stay safe.
