Scuring mobile applications is about safeguarding
the app and the user's digital identity
. It includes the best practices for protecting data from hacking,
malware, and other criminal manipulations.
The concept also implies detecting potential vulnerabilities
within the mobile app. The key purpose of all this effort is to avoid cyber security threats and prevent cases when personal data falls into the wrong hands.
Sure, not only mobile app users take damage from the data breaks. First and foremost it's both a reputational and financial loss for the provider.
Users are keen to stop using an app if
their privacy expectations are not met (next, we'll talk about it in more detail).
Therefore, data security most likely tops your to-do list
if you are looking to develop a mobile product from scratch or scale up your mobile application.
No one is safe from cyber-attacks and unexpected risks. But our task is to know about them, prevent them and meet them fully armed.
