Afternoon tea


Securing mobile devices

In embracing mobility, end point security of mobile devices is crucial to protect data loss, either through instances of negligence or actual theft. With increasing numbers of individuals utilising mobile devices for work purposes, managing the access and security of enterprise data through the use of these devices is a top priority.
• Top security concerns related to mobile devices
• How do you manage the use of devices whilst determining access in a user friendly way?

Philip Whitmore, Director IT Advisory, KPMG Security Advisory Services


Is near-enough good enough anymore?

As mobile device and location intelligence technology matures, is near-enough still good enough? Location aware mobile devices can help increase enterprise productivity, but location intelligence is really only as useful as the location data that powers it. It doesn’t matter how clever the device is if the location data it consumes is inaccurate.
• Understand the importance and benefits of truly accurate location data.
• Real world examples including a case study on NZ emergency services.
• Next generation location intelligence (LiDAR)
