Security vendors failing to tackle mobile malware, say CISOs

Sophie Curtis | Jan. 18, 2013
Malware is still the biggest threat to mobile security, but most mobile device management (MDM) strategies tend to focus on securing the physical device in case of loss of theft, according to Peter Gibbons, head of Information Security at Network Rail.

"The third phase is when we realise it's actually very expensive to do that, and most of the data we're passing round doesn't need protecting anyway, so let's move the protection down to the bits of data that actually matter to us," he said

"Then it doesn't matter where you go, you can't actually access those bit of data unless you've got the appropriate keys and permissions to do so."

The Infosecurity Europe summit takes place between 23-25 April 2013 at Earl's Court London.
