IT Capability: Designing for Mobile Security

By | July 8, 2014
This entry is part 8 of 10 in the series Strategic IT Capabilities

All systems of engagement need a security architecture, but this is particularly important for financial services.

Mobile apps need to have security designed into them directly to protect sensitive data that they are using or have persisted to the device.

The device also must be secured.  Finding and/or wiping lost devices.  Cleaning enterprise data from user-owned devices when the association between the user and the enterprise has been broken (as when an employee terminates employment) without affecting personal data.

Protecting transactions from malware, screen scrapers, key loggers, etc.

Key enablers of this capability are the security measures in mobile application platforms and vulnerability scanning software.
