About the Session:
Creating and sustaining a mobile application vetting capability within an organization can be an expensive and time consuming prospect. For agencies that don’t have many apps to vet, this can lead to a negative return on its investment. This session will investigate what it takes to stand up a mobile app vetting capability within an organization and explore the concept of creating a public/private partnership between the government and private sector to establish app vetting standards & criteria, provide “approved” criteria for vendors, evaluate app vetting tools for effectiveness and establish joint (government/commercial) app vetting service providers/labs to “certify” apps, e.g., “UL Certified.”
