Top three mobile application threats

Updated The National Information Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC) - the UK government body that provides security advice to organisations responsible for critical services - is to team up with NGS Software in producing early warning notices about pending IT security problems. Information about security problems, along with mitigation advice, will be released before suppliers deliver patches.

NISCC is stepping up its efforts to provide organisations that run critical services with more timely IT security advice by partnering with private sector companies. The deal with Surrey-based NGS Software (NGSS), a firm well known for its application security research, follows an earlier agreement to handle advisories from security firm Corsaire and distribute them through the UNIRAS reporting scheme. ®
