ISMG Announces 2013 Mobile Security Survey Results Webinar

Information Security Media Group (ISMG), publisher of BankInfoSecurity, today announces the launch of its latest webinar, "Beyond BYOD: 2013 Mobile Security Survey Results," which will debut June 25 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

At a time of unprecedented mobile device adoption - and evolving mobile security threats - 72 percent of organizations rate their state of mobile security as poor-to-adequate. This lack of mobile preparedness is one of many key points to emerge from the results of the Beyond BYOD: 2013 Mobile Security Strategies Survey, produced by ISMG and Accellion, Inc., the pioneer in providing enterprise-class, secure mobile file sharing solutions.

Organizations of all sizes are dealing with the influx of mobile devices on their network, and haven't yet had adequate time to manage the risks associated with securing the systems and data accessed broadly by employees' mobile devices. The "Beyond BYOD: Mobile Security Survey Results" webinar, sponsored by Accellion, investigates how organizations will address today's top mobile security challenges, with emphasis on:

  • State of Security - Which mobile platforms will organizations support, and how do they rate their state of mobile security?
  • Policy - What formal policies do organizations have in place for issues such as inventory, mobile device/application management and data/device encryption?
  • Controls - What security solutions are in place to secure identity and access management, content and the use of third-party applications?
  • Metrics - How do organizations measure the tangible business results of mobile initiatives, including cost-savings and improved productivity?
  • Investments - What are the top areas of mobile security investment for the coming year?

In addition to delivering an overview of key survey results, this session will include a panel discussion, featuring mobile security experts Elayne Starkey of the State of Delaware and Malcolm Harkins of Intel, who will analyze the results and offer mobile security tips for organizations.
