Mobile Risk Management: A Gap Analysis and A Paper

2 minute read


According to the SAIC/McAfee study, there will be 1.8 billion smartphones by 2013.  According to Trusteer, 1 in 20 mobile devices will be compromised by 2012.  That means there is an estimated 90 million mobile devices that will be compromised in 2013.

90 million.  That’s how much Manning will make in the next 5 years.  That’s how many active PayPal accounts are in 190 countries.  Apple has sold over this number of iPhones since 2007.  Are you familiar with FreeRice?  FreeRice helps feed this number of people around the world with the World Food Programme.

FreeRice asks, “How do you feed 90 million people?”  You might be asking, “How do I protect myself and my corporation from being part of these 90 million people?”

Know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. – Ancient Chinese Warrior, Sun Tzu.

If you know what your enemy is looking for and how he plans to get there, you know your enemy.  If you know the gaps in your security, where you can be infiltrated, how someone can sneak into your mobile device and into your network, you know yourself.
