CompTIA and viaForensics have just launched a new set of in-depth exams on mobile application security. The Mobile App Security+ exams are structured to ensure that candidates have the specific knowledge required to build native iOS or Android applications that secure local data, off-device communications, and back-end services.
Zetetic had an opportunity to review the exam objectives before launch, and they promise to ensure a solid foundation in a wide range of mobile security topics. If you're not yet convinced that mobile applications need an even greater focus on security, the article that accompanies the test program, Why Mobile App Development is a Risky Business, will change your mind by providing an realistic overview of common risks and challenges.
Registration for the Beta exams is free for a limited time (use promo codes "MAPS ADR Mkt beta" or "MAPS iOS Mkt beta") and definitely worth checking out for anyone building mobile applications today.
