Mobile app security vulnerabilities have put the U.S. Navy and Marines, the Ukrainian military, and military bases and installations around the world in harm’s way. hackers and nation states could learn the locations of troops using the mobile apps, and in some cases could also access other highly sensitive operational information.

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the economy and the traditional ways companies do business. To adapt, companies have added new services to their mobile apps or launched new apps to improve safety and capture more business. Here’s a look at how a handful of industries have innovated with mobile-centric strategies.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) took effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and is currently the toughest, most comprehensive privacy law in the United States. It has also spawned state privacy laws and proposed legislation.

Although we recommend periodic in-depth pen tests for high-risk mobile apps that run business-critical processes or access sensitive information, this practice doesn’t scale well for DevOps teams. Mobile app pen testing requires intense human labor that simply can’t keep pace with the volume, velocity and frequency of DevOps releases. Many organizations can benefit from incorporating automated mobile appsec testing in the mobile DevSecOps toolchain to speed the delivery of secure mobile apps.
IDC estimates that by the end of 2019, organizations worldwide will have spent more than $1 trillion on digital transformation initiatives.
