Rogue applications designed to impersonate a company's corporate brand are increasingly prevalent on the Internet, offering attackers an easy way to fool online users into downloading malicious apps aimed at compromising credentials, says Arian Evans, vice president of product strategy for the online security firm RiskIQ.
In an interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2015 in San Francisco, Evans discusses:
- How companies can reduce their risk by maintaining an up-to-date inventory of all of the apps they have available on the Internet;
- Why the Snapchat breach set a new bar for rogue apps; and
- How rogue mobile banking applications are catching some banking institutions by surprise.
