Smartphones have become essential to modern life. They keep us connected with our social groups and provide us with instant access to all of human knowledge. As app developers, we have the opportunity to gather a wealth of information about each user that can be used to customize the experience in our applications.
However, with this wealth of information also comes great responsibility. How are we protecting this data from prying eyes? Are we collecting too much data? Are we transmitting and storing this data safely? If our data was compromised, what is our mitigation plan?
in this talk we’ll discuss the critical security aspects of sensitive customer information, and how we can protect our (and our customers’) data. We’ll also explore ways to ensure that the applications you use are safely handling the data that you send for yourself, your app and your company.
