The Five W’s of Mobile Malware
Mobile malware is a growing menace, even though many cybersecurity practitioners don’t fully grasp the situation. This presentation will address the "Five W’s" of mobile malware, namely:
  • Who is developing it and who is being affected by it?
  • What exactly is it?
  • When does it get dropped on mobile devices and when does it execute on mobile devices?
  • Where are botnet operations that harvest mobile devices most prevalent?
  • Why is mobile malware developed in the first place?
This high-level presentation will stimulate thoughtful discussions and commensurate actions amongst cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with defending their schools students and faculty, data, and infrastructure.
