A popular Android app Barcode Scanner was recently found to be infected with adware. After an update in late 2020, it started pushing advertising to users without warning. The QR code scanning app has been on the Google Play Store for years with over 10 million downloads and a high rating from users. So what happened? This actually happens pretty often.

As I’m writing this blog, malicious actors are actively exploiting vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Exchange Server software. These were zero-day exploits, which means that even organizations that were diligent in their patching were vulnerable. So far the estimates are that more than 60,000 organizations have been compromised.

It’s no secret that the world has become more dependent on mobile technology. We can now pay our bills, shop for groceries and share photos with family with the tap of a finger. But this also means that our personal data is now more exposed than ever. On the bright side, we are collectively becoming more conscious about data privacy. In 2020, TikTok kick started an unexpected global discussion about what data apps collect and how they are used.

I write a lot about how organizations can secure their workers as they start using tablets and smartphones more for work. The truth is, the legal professional has been ahead of that curve for years. Even before smartphones were introduced over a decade ago, lawyers, paralegals and legal staff were already using cellphones to stay on top of case work. Now, with smartphones and tablets, your law firm’s staff can do everything they used to do in an office from wherever they go.

Over the past decade, we’ve seen a massive shift towards relying on cloud technologies for everything we do, from watching TV shows and movies to sharing photos. Organizations have done the same. To increase efficiency and availability, they have moved their data and workloads to the cloud. But in a world of expanding threats, it has become necessary to implement additional layers of security for cloud data, applications and services to ensure privacy remains a top priority.

The perimeter has disappeared. Legacy security technologies do not apply. Devices cannot be trusted. As employees continue to use a mix of managed and unmanaged devices, it sets up the need for a new security architecture: Zero Trust for mobile. Read this whitepaper to.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints. Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective. Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security.

Consumer financial institutions are in the midst of a digital transformation that includes moving traditional face-to-face customer interactions to mobile devices. Forty-three percent of people who own a mobile device and have a bank account use mobile banking, according to a Federal Reserve study titled, "Consumers and Mobile Financial Services." Mobile banking creates unprecedented conveniences for customers, such as mobile check deposits, near-instant person-to-person transfers, and access to personal financial accounts in real time.
