Prof. Dipankar Dasgupta, director of the Center for Information Assurance, was featured on a Feb. 19 FOX13 Memphis news story about security threats in mobile software.

In the newscast, Prof. Dasgupta warned viewers that security is often lacking in mobile apps, leaving sensitive personal information vulnerable.  He also indicated that although there are steps users can take to mitigate their risks, app security must ultimately come from app creators themselves.
