With the rapid adoption of mobile computing, and immediate connection to cloud computing, the CSA established the Top Threats to Mobile Computing research discipline, in addition to the current Top Threats to Cloud Computing, to provide its membership with specific data on how the security community views such threats.
"Personally owned mobile devices are increasingly being used to access employers' systems and cloud-hosted data, both via browser-based and native mobile applications. This without a doubt is a tremendous concern for enterprises worldwide, " said John Yeoh, Research Analyst for the Cloud Security Alliance. "The results of this research will play an important role as we set out to develop much needed guidance on where time, talent and money should be placed when it comes to addressing mobile security threats."
