Posted by Mocana on 11/13/15 3:30 PM

To summarize many of these articles, there is a "lack of priority in mobile security." (see first article below)

As mobile devices become more integrated into our daily lives, it is essential we address the problems that lack of proper security poses to our personal and professional lives. 

Both Apple and Android well as many apps that run on those platforms have proven security risks and flaws.
