Mobile devices in every users' hand takes the attack surface deep in to your organization and mobile applications are the easiest way out for data leakage as the devices store sensitive corporate data. Smart mobile devices are part of everyone's life and infrastructure and users rely on them for lot of business activities daily. How many of us in IT & IT Security know how to access the security exposure and risk thru these mobile devices and the applications that run on these devices. With this course take a deep dive in to understanding the Android Architecture and on how to evaluate the security posture of the Applications that run on Android inclusive of the Mobile Banking Apps.


IT Managers, IT Security Officers, System Administrators, Network administrators, Developers, Security Posture Assessors & Pentesters, IT Security Auditors and anyone who is concerned about deploying or managing Mobile Applications in the Enterprise
