Mobile Application Privacy and Analytics - Kevin Cody BSides Cleveland 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Mobile Application Privacy and Analytics
Kevin Cody


Have you ever wondered how much data your favorite shopping application is capturing during your mobile app visits? Or, have you questioned what kind of data that mobile game you love is able to gather, even if you don't give it special permissions? What about the final consensus on that long running theory on if XYZ Enterprise is using your microphone to listen to your conversations and target advertisements? This session will hone in on exactly those questions. We will tear apart some common analytic products and tracking engines to expose exactly the content and frequency our commonly used mobile applications are reporting. Attendees will walk away with insider knowledge to make informed decisions in regard to how analytic services work in conjunction with their favorite mobile applications.

Kevin is a Senior Application Security Consultant with experience working at several Fortune 500 enterprises. Although his particular expertise is geared toward hacking Web and Mobile applications, he is also experienced in the entire gamut from mainframes to embedded systems. Kevin is adamant on helping build-up developers through security, which can be seen in his involvement within OWASP or while speaking at events like CodeMash or BSides. In his spare time, Kevin can be found attempting to repair something (via online DIY videos), reading tech books, fishing, or simply spending time with his wife and children.
