GSEC Gold Paper Accepted: Securely Integrating iOS Devices into the Business Environment

This past weekend, I was put on notice that my GSEC Gold paper was accepted and published by SANS. Here is the abstract:

“Driven primarily by the end user, iOS devices continue to inundate businesses at an ever-increasing rate.  Because these devices are housing sensitive organizational data, it is imperative that it is understood what risks to the organization are involved in allowing users to utilize these devices for business.  Ascertaining what the risks are, and what the compensating controls would be, should be a critical component of any business risk assessment. The security features of the device itself, how applications are utilized on the device, and the actual usage of the device needs to be evaluated. Beyond the aforementioned areas, a major consideration that needs to be taken into account is whether the device is personally owned or business owned, as well as how it is managed, as these will be the primary factors by which controls are evaluated to manage the incurred risk.  Finally, users need to be made aware of the risks, and trained in what their responsibility is to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.”

Here is a link to the paper.
