viaForensics @ Cisco CIO Summit 2013 in London

viaForensics CIO Andrew Hoog and Director of R&D Thomas Cannon will present on mobile security and BYOD at Cisco’s CIO Summit 2013.

Topic and Demo

viaForensics will provide a compelling technical demonstration for the session “Free it Up or Lock it Down? Cybersecurity – Is it a true inhibitor to progress or is it the start point of enablement? The demo will demonstrate how a third party app (an RSS reader in this case) can be used to target and exploit a mobile device over the air. We will demonstrate how we can steal data from the device, remote record video and audio and ultimately turn the device into remote keyboard to circumvent all corporate defense and have remote “hands on keyboard”. The rise of “bring your own device” programs is the single most radical shift in the economics of client computing for organization since PCs invaded the workplace. As companies continue to migrate toward cloud-based models and further embrace BYOD and mobility to maximize workforce productivity, network security is becoming increasingly complex. What can Hackers really do in a mobile device world? How do you get wise to their tricks? CIOs are faced with the decision of what to do with the security of their network and data and the answer, of course, is neither black nor white… Striking a balance between productivity and security requires a new level of network visibility and control – one that enables organizations to not only see what’s going on in new user devices, within their local network and the external global network, but also to make intelligent security decisions based on that insight.
