Security is more than just purchasing the latest next-generation solution to the most recent threat of attack. Likewise, security in mobile application development doesn't mean simply conducting a penetration assessment of your client application and server-side services before you place them into production. Successful security is always a combination of people, process, and technology meeting to serve business needs. In this report, we outline the top 10 most important nontechnical security risks in mobile application development. This report is an update of the document previously titled "Address The Top 10 Nontechnical Security Issues In Mobile App Development." Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy; we substantially revised this edition to factor in Forrester's Global Business Technographics® Security Survey, 2015 data, as well as changes in the mobile security market.
