Secure Coding Practices Out The Window With Mobile Apps
Ericka Chickowski

With every business from the tiniest SMB to the largest enterprise
looking to plant its flag in the ground with regard to mobile
applications, the mobile app development boom is on in a very big way.
Amid this blind rush to beat the competition to the market, mobile
developers are feeling their way around in the dark -- and with a
development environment still in its infancy and no real standards to
lead the way, it's an adventure for all parties involved.

Particularly scary to many security professionals is the fact that the
speedy mobile development cycle and this lack of experience in the
platforms is causing coders to throw all of those secure development
principles the industry has fought for over the past five years right
out the window when it comes to mobile apps.
