Backed up by his experience at Howard Kennedy LLP, Jonathan revealed the key reasons why all legal firms must embrace and adopt powerful mobile device security technologies, such as Lookout. Especially if they are serious about safeguarding their data, their people and their reputation.
His discussion was focused around four vectors of risk:
- The application
- The device
- The network
- Web and content (phishing)
He discussed the current and future mobile threats that law firms face, and how these are evolving at an alarming rate. Specific threats included Pegasus – an application threat that makes devices susceptible to jailbreaking.
In addition, Jonathan covered Custom Keyboard Applications that allow key strokes to be logged. Plus, OS vulnerabilities caused by, for instance, manufacturers not keeping up with security patches. He also discussed third party app stores on iOS, such as iOS Ninja.
