In his Zero Trust session with NFL, CISO, Tomas Maldanado, Ramy Houssani, Chief Cyber & Technology Risk Officer & Group Privacy Officer, BNP Paribas put it rather succinctly, "Mobile threats are quite frankly exploding. We see from the Verizon Mobile Security Index report that there are about 5% of Android devices that contain malware. That's actually pretty bad. It means that we really have a set of devices that could be weaponized against an organization and could create data breaches, could create ransomware propagation across the network. So most of these trends, they really rely on the fact that there is a consumerization of enterprise IT, which will continue and would only amplify in magnitude and scale."
