It has been an eventful time in the mobile world with two recent breaking stories revealing vulnerabilities in the security infrastructure for Android and iOS respectively. While vastly different in their nature, both point to a fundamental lesson that CISOs in an increasingly mobile world cannot ignore – when it comes to encryption, read the fine print. Otherwise you may find yourself up the proverbial creek without a paddle (i.e., remediation strategy).

Peripatetic lawyers, take note from Friday, 1/5/2018, in the Washington Post:
“U.S. customs agents conducted 60 percent more searches of travelers’ cellphones, laptops and other electronic devices during the government’s 2017 fiscal year, according to statistics released Friday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
The agency said it searched 30,200 devices but the inspections affected only 0.007 percent of the 397 million travelers — including American citizens as well as foreign visitors — who arrived from abroad during the 12-month period that ended Sept 30.”1
This brief article from Help Net Security, Top blacklisted Android and iOS apps by enterprises caught my eye this morning. The piece highlights a portion of the data from the new Appthority 3Q ’17 Enterprise Mobile Security Pulse Report, which you can download for free.
The Help Net Security article cites the apps blacklisted by enterprises for iOS and for Android, their “Risk Score” and the “Risk Driver.” IT professionals should take note, not only of the blacklisted apps but of the associated risks.
