Today Joey Janssen successfully graduated after a solid defense with an 8.5 on the development of a Mobile Risk Assessment Method for mobile enterprise security. Here's the abstract of our paper based on Joey's work which we will be submitting soon. Another successful Deloitte collaboration! 

"Mobile solutions seem to outrun the control and governance within enterprise organizations. The acceptance of smartphones and tablets in business has gone at such high pace that organizations are not able to oversee the risks of their mobile usage. Traditional risk assessment methods do not consider mobility, despite that enterprise organizations struggle with managing mobile risks. This study aims to fill this gap by introducing a Mobile Risk Assessment Method (M-RAM). The method is based on an evaluation of industry standard risk methods and 22 interviews with mobile security experts. The final artifact exists of three components, (1) a risk assessment process that is customized for mobility, (2) involved entities that oppose risks and (3) attention areas that can contain vulnerabilities as well as controls. Moreover, the study provides a practical work program to conduct the M-RAM and validates the approach by conducting a case study."
