Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] will be attending this year’s conference, exhibiting in the North Expo. Our team is looking forward to learning which security topics are most prevalent among peers and engaging in meaningful discussions on today’s challenges and innovation.

Peer2Peer at RSAMobile Devices: What Could Go Wrong? Discussion from the Frontlines

February 14, 2017 | 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM | Marriott Marquis | Nob Hill B

How many of your employees use their personal phones to access email, calendars or internal web resources? As of 2016, 77% of U.S. adults owned a smartphone, according to the Pew Research Center. In a world of BYOD (bring your own device), this session offers the opportunity to learn how your peers are dealing with security risks associated with mobile devices, apps and wi-fi networks that employees use.

This discussion will take place as part of the “Peer2Peers” breakout sessions, which is one of our favorite aspects of this conference. Facilitated by David Jevans, VP of Mobile Security at Proofpoint, it’s sure to spur meaningful conversations and peer-to-peer discussion.
