How strong do you perceive your mobile application security program to be?

Weak. I don't secure my mobile applications at this time.

Mobile Application Security Maturity - Leveling Up.

Enterprises are struggling to understand the risk and privacy impacts of the mobile applications in use in their environment. As the consumerization of mobile continues to shove BYOD into the enterprise, the number of applications in use is growing exponentially. Organizations must get a better handle on just how much risk is accumulating from the proliferation of mobile apps on their user’s devices.

I'm currently researching a concept designed to help an enterprise know where they are on the mobile application security maturity curve. Understanding where one currently resides is the quickest method to determine the path required to improving your standing in the future.

Does your organization allow BYOD?
Do you inventory all of the mobile applications in use in your environment?
Do you execute security and privacy analysis on mobile applications in an organized fashion?
How do you define and enforce policies around mobile application security?

I’ve created a survey to determine current baseline enterprise mobile application maturity levels. If you are involved in the mobile management and security decisions of your enterprise now is your time to help. Please go to the survey link below and fill out the form. I will summarize some of the findings in a future blog post.
