Is Uber a Threat to Your Business? A Mobile Security Webinar

Uber is a globally used app with over 40 million active users per month,* across 528 cities. It is used by individuals and companies alike as an efficient, no fuss, cost-effective taxi service.

But…

Did you know it may be accessing your corporate data?

Our strategic partner, Appthority, has been evaluating changes made to the app between 2015 and 2016. They found two significant updates, these are:

  • Location tracking for 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after a ride
  • Leveraging an ecosystem of partners to provide enhanced capabilities–with Uber data being shared across new APIs

How does this affect your business?

Whilst enhancing convenience for users, it is actually potentially putting sensitive personal and corporate data at risk. , discovered that Uber’s updated and incomplete privacy policies and excessive location tracking make users’ smartphones susceptible to spear phishing and watering hole attacks, physical security exposures, and widespread privacy breaches.

So, are your employees putting corporate data at risk?

Join our webinar to learn more about the outcome of their investigation and how you can protect your business from such risks.
