Data security gets a bad rap. What with massive data breaches plaguing news headlines every few months and the number of affected people increasing each year, you’d think that security experts don’t stand up against the hackers and malware of today. But there’s a piece missing to this story.
Most data breaches are a result of not upgrading the security systems until after a breach happens. It’s a tale heard in the security sector time and time again. A massive data breach is reported, a data security firm is hired to mitigate further issues, and millions of Americans are left to settle up with their exposed data.
To avoid this, proper security auditing and mobile penetration testing are two ways companies can adequately secure their operations. And when it comes to companies with a mobile app, mobile pen testing is particularly crucial.
