Protecting sensitive information on iOS devices
Posted on 20 March 2013.
We've seen the deep technical research showing what makes iOS devices secure (or sometimes not so much). But once you grok ASLR and code signing, are you really any closer to understanding the risk these devices present to your environment?

This talk reviews the key technologies available to keep data protected on iStuff, hopefully framing the discussion in a way decision makers can understand.

From built-in features, to tricks for getting around them, to advanced attacks, we look at the most important things you can do to keep your data secure. And provide a non-nonsense reality check on the reasons you'll never be 100% safe.

The talk concludes with a short review of best practices, both for configuration and custom application development, as well as a review of improved controls introduced in iOS 6.
