Mobile Devices Ethical Hacking


The objective of the course is to provide an understanding of the fundamental risks of mobility, as well as those involving Wi-Fi and mobility infrastructure.

It presents real world use cases on how devices can be compromised using industry attack tools and engages attendees in solution analysis methodology designed to protect against such vulnerabilities.

Participants will learn how to significantly mitigate the risk introduced as a result of mobile devices accessing corporate data, while still preserving a seamless and productive user experience. The class involves participants through a combination of focused mobile protection labs and whiteboard sessions detailing potential solution and mitigation options.

More and more, with not only standard everyday mobile phone users but now with businesses increased reliance on these devices, organizations are quickly recognizing that mobile phones and tablets and other portable devices require greater security controls than a rubberized shock protector and complex password.
