For years now, security experts have been predicting ‘the year mobile threats come of age.’ Is it finally here? BioCatch’s Uri Rivner discusses the recent surge in mobile threats – and what to do about them.
Rivner, co-founder and head of cyber strategy at BioCatch, outlines his view of the flood of threats against organizations of all sizes and sectors. Specifically, he sees a flood of device malware, remote access attacks and social engineering via mobile. What’s driving this surge? In part, Rivner says, it’s because organizations are bringing the same processes and functionalities to mobile that they used in other channels, which also were vulnerable to attacks.
