This year’s Counter Terrorism Conference (London, 19th – 20th April 2011, ) looks set to be one of the largest CT events ever.
We need to keep up with new threats and challenges, and I have been asked to speak at the conference on cell/mobile phone security. My session is called “Cell Phone Hacking – The Terrorist’s Latest Playground” and is scheduled for 1100hrs – 1120hrs on Wednesday 20th April. It will be based on research I have been conducting into the jihadist use of mobile phones to spread propaganda against a background of commoditised hacking against the GSM mobile phone network.
In addition to speaking at the conference I will be spending time at the Morrigan Partners stand (P44) discussing the issues that GSM hacking is presenting to businesses and organisations. I will be at the stand from 1430hrs – 1530hrs on Tuesday 19th April and 1200hrs – 1300hrs and 1430hrs – 1530hrs on Wednesday 20th April.
If you are interested in the problem of cell/mobile phone hacking come along and have a chat at these times. I’d be happy to speak about more research I am doing and ways in which you can protect your data, systems and users from such attacks by terrorists and criminals alike.
