Mobile App Security Professional? Get CSSLP-Certified!
As mobile technologies become even more embedded in our daily life than we could ever imagine, there seems to be a mobile app for everything. And that joke ‘there is a mobile app for that’ isn’t even that much of a joke anymore. At the same time, we often hear about various ugly information leaks from somebody’s mobile phone being hacked, and celebrities’ nude photos being the least of damage made. So does it mean that mobile apps are not secure enough?
In short, YES: mobile apps are not secure enough. Although developers invest lots of resources in their products, and companies cannot emphasize enough the importance of mobile app security, there is still a huge gap in this field. As a result, the need for mobile app security specialists is now on the rise. This is a very exciting field where just having a formal credential isn’t really enough: you need to be curios and hungry for learning as the biggest discoveries and breakthroughs in this field seem yet to come. However, formal credentials and professional mobile app security certifications are definitely the place to start if you’re interested in this career.
According to (ISC)2 , CSSLP validates the holders’ capabilities of developing an application security program in their organization; reducing production costs, application vulnerabilities and delivery delay; enhancing the credibility of the organization and its development team; reducing loss of revenue and reputation due to a breach resulting from insecure software.
This demonstrates the new approach: to prepare app developers and development team leads to plug inevitable holes in the app security.
