Why Mobile Apps Need a Unique Security Approach
Duration: 45-minutes + Q&A
Does your mobile DevOps team have an automated approach to ensuring your app is protected and secure each time you release it? In this webinar, Gen Citro, Enterprise Solutions Architect here at Bitrise, discusses why doing just that is critical, with special guest and mobile security expert Karen Hsu, SVP of Mobile DevOps & Security Solutions at Appdome.
Appdome is a cyber defense automation platform for Android and iOS apps. Bitrise partners with Appdome to ensure our customers have the right tools to ensure their apps are secure.
Almost every study on mobile apps shows a significant growth in usage and impact. An increase in app usage however means apps are more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Within hours of a mobile app’s release, hackers attack the app and by the time fraud is identified in transactions, it’s too late. While every organization aspires to a predictable software development cycle, the challenge is delivering secure apps without disrupting or delaying that predictable cycle.
Gen started out as a Solutions Engineer in adtech specializing in programmatic ad delivery to mobile, video, and web environments.
He then spent 10 years at Google, first as a business technology consultant and then as a manager of teams across Northern Europe, advising the world’s biggest brands how to maximize the potential of cloud, SaaS, and Big Data.
Karen’s focus is on automating the protection of mobile apps right inside the DevOps pipeline. She co-founded BlockchainIntel to identify fraud in ACH, credit card and crypto transactions, becoming part of Appdome to extend the mission of protecting people and companies from bad actors. With over 25 years of experience in tech, Karen is co-inventor of 5 patents and has led teams for security, Web3, Cloud Data Management, and CRM platforms.
