We are pleased to announce the 2013 call for data to help refresh the Mobile Top 10 Risks for 2013 and publish a more formal publication. We are encouraging everyone to get involved.
The current Mobile Top Ten Risks are located here:
Right now we are looking for data that represents the current state of mobile application security. We are soliciting not just vulnerability data, but also incident and attack data that reflects the real-world prevalence and significance of these issues. The goal in requiring both is to rank risks accordingly based on data as opposed to making assumptions. We will use this data to flesh out and re-evaluate the currently incomplete Mobile Top Ten Project.
- Issue: Something related to geolocation
- Percentage Affected: X%
- Number Affected: Y (only if you are comfortable with this)
- Brief Description: This is a problem because xyz and also, bad things.
Also, any help spreading the word on the Mobile Security Project is immensely helpful. A Tweet/Facebook/Linkedin post, blog entry, etc. This initiative will fail if people don't know about it. Anyone that you can promote this initiative to will help the cause.
We thank all of you in advance for your participation and hard work in making this initiative a success. Your participation will be noted and recorded when compiling the list of contributors for the final release of the Mobile Top 10 Risks documentation.
