Ashburn, Virginia, 2nd March 2018 – Shevirah, a specialist in automated mobile and IoT device testing and training, today announced that their CTO and Founder, Georgia Weidman, will be leading a post conference workshop at the upcoming InfoSec World Conference and Expo 2018 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

The perimeter has been shattered. We do not sit at desks in offices working on corporate issued workstations. We work from home, at client sites, on airplanes using laptops, mobile phones, tablets, smartwatches, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has introduced thousands of devices of unknown security postures to the network.

There is an IoT meeting scheduler outside every room at office, a Smart TV in every meeting room, and maintenance just switched the entire building to smart lightbulbs. Yet our security testing programs and tools focuses almost exclusively on the traditional idea of an enterprise, workstations, servers, a hardened perimeter with a firewall. Attackers are not so generous and are launching attacks against the ubiquitous mobile and IoT endpoints. Security must catch up.

In this course, we will study the risks of mobility and IoT to the enterprise, discuss the landscape of security options available to us, and most importantly become competent at vulnerability assessment, impact analysis, and determining the effectiveness of security products you deploy to protect mobility and IoT from attacks.
