Dodging a Security Disaster
The best way an organization can protect their data is by employing comprehensive security testing of all devices brought in by workers. Static application security testing and dynamic application security testing need to be kept updated with each operating system version, especially mobile versions where apps are updated on a highly continuous basis.
An important feature of programs and apps to watch out for is the background processes that they run. Some apps and programs may collect data and send it off, all in the background without the user knowing. Pay attention to app and program permissions to make sure they’re not asking for access to data they don’t need. Businesses should test the security status of all servers and devices on a regular basis. Make a list available to employees of apps and programs that aren’t security threats and allow them to only use apps and programs from that list. Other methods like wrapping and SDK packaging will take your company’s security a step further.
