Registration Opens for Amphion Forum Mobile Security Event in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Mocana (News - Alert), the device security leader, announced that registration is now
open for the next Amphion
Forum event to be held December 12-13 in San Francisco, California.
Attendees that register at amphionforum.com before 5:00 p.m. PDT on
Monday, September 9 can use priority code "WRAP" and receive a free
ticket to the event (regularly priced at $499). The event is hosted by
Mocana and presented by SAP, Forrester Research and Codenomicon (News - Alert).
The Amphion Forum is an open, vendor-neutral and cross-industry
gathering of industry leaders and technologists building the foundations
of the new extended enterprise - those new organizations that transcend
traditional boundaries by leveraging disruptive device security and
mobile security technologies. The Forum brings together mobility
companies with hackers and app security experts, as well as technology
leaders from business, academia, and the public sector to discuss the
opportunities-and sobering threats-presented by the proliferation of
mobile devices and the Internet of Things.
The event, characterized by planners as "part TED and part Meetup" has
grown from a single day to a two-day program, with expanded content and
networking opportunities for the security, mobility and hacking
'digerati.' Talks will range from the deeply technical to the
big-picture strategic, with topics such as: iOS 7 security; threats to
critical infrastructure; Android (News - Alert) hacks; app-wrapping and mobile code
injection; mobile device maagement (MDM) and mobile application
management (MAM); secure containers; mobile hypervisors; and the future
of app security automation.
Selected talks include:
Mobile Security Vision Keynotes from SAP (News - Alert), Forrester Research,
Codenomicon and Mocana;
"Android Application Reverse Engineering and Defenses," by Felix
Matenaar and Patrick Schulz, Bluebox;
"Mobile App Code Injection: the Next Generation," by Erik Peterson,
"Abusing the Internet of Things: Blackouts, Freakouts, and Stakeouts,"
by independent researcher Nitesh Dhanjani; and
"Finding Undesirable Behaviors in Mobile Apps Using Dynamic Analysis,"
by Kevin Watkins of Appthority.
"Past attendees cite the heterogeneity of Amphion Forum delegates as one
of the best features of the Forum, in that it provides a terrific
networking environment mixing industries, expertise and skillsets that
ordinarily wouldn't meet," said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, vice president
of market development at Mocana and chair of the Amphion Forum. "That's
the recipe we need for solving the tough interdisciplinary problems of
mobile security and app management."
Other Amphion Forum sponsors include the Security Innovation Network
(SINET), Appthority and Secure Access Technologies.
Registration for Amphion Forum 2013 is now open. To register for the
