Personal player information, in-game currencies, microtransactions, bank accounts linked to their gaming accounts — all make gaming companies and their mobile apps juicy targets for attackers who are looking to take advantage of game companies, payment processes, app developers, CISOs and consumers. Game publishers are honor bound to protect their IP, apps, game consoles and streaming systems from cyber criminals because if they don’t their revenue and brand reputations will suffer.

Mobile games are vulnerable to cyber attacks in several ways:
Mobile gaming app security is critical.
Most mobile gaming apps are not protected, making them easy targets for cybercriminals. To protect against vulnerabilities, game developers and CISOS should implement strong security measures, including encryption, secure data storage, and regular software updates. They should also conduct regular security testing to identify any potential vulnerabilities in their apps. And of course, they should protect their apps.
