Mobile and IoT applications continue to be released at a rapid pace. But organizations’ rush-to-release of new applications to meet rapidly-evolving user demand can jeopardize the applications’ level of security protection. In this webcast, Larry Ponemon reviews findings from our brand-new mobile & IoT application security study.

Join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Chris Sherman, and IBM MaaS360 portfolio marketing leader, Jonathan Dale, as they share best practices for securing and empowering your mobile workforce.


In this exclusive podcast series, IBM Security’s Mitch Mayne sat down with Ferrillo and Veltsos to discuss what they consider some of the most important topics in their book. This opening episode includes an introduction to the authors and a look at why they decided to write “Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now.”

In the second episode of the series, Ferrillo and Veltsos join moderator Mitch Mayne to examine what they deem the most serious issue in security today: communication. While chief information security officers (CISOs) and boards of directors all seek what’s best for the organization, a language barrier between the two may be inhibiting the very conversations that are most necessary.

The previous episode of this series highlighted the communications gap between CISOs and boards of directors. This week’s podcast takes on a related topic, exploring internal communications and how CISOs can improve their relationships with others members of the C-suite.
