Digging Into Mobile Security

Edward Snowden's revelations about the antics of the National Security Agency and the UK's GCHQ have had ramifications across the whole of the communications sector, including mobile operators.

In a video interview now available on Light Reading, Heavy Reading senior analyst Patrick Donegan says that mobile operators are experiencing something of a "negative impact" in terms of data service usage following the Snowden revelations. As a result, service providers are now focused on the different ways in which they can protect their customers' privacy and communicating their customer privacy strategies.

Donegan also talks about the different network security challenges operators are facing as they build out their all-IP 4G LTE networks.

See what Donegan has to say about these issues by watching Mobile Security: The Snowden Fallout.

Mobile security expert Donegan will be hosting a breakfast briefing on these and other security-related matters during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Wednesday, February 26. Mobile operator executives can sign up to attend Creating Trust in the Mobile Network by clicking on Creating Trust in the Mobile Networkthis link. Those attending the breakfast then have the option of boarding a special breakfast briefing bus (oh yes!) that will take them to the Mobile World Congress showgrounds.

Re : Digging Into Mobile Security
I think that it is too late to be accepting the dusting procedure on networks. The malwares and trackers planted by NSA have been in the networks for too long now, and a ground up recovery would cause losses for the companies. What can be done is having a decentralized approach at recovery. This will take time, but this will be the safest way possible to remove spying from the networks.

Security - it's massive...
The more one looks at all the security angles the 4G operators have to consider, the more mind-boggling it gets.

That's why it's so important for the service providers to get to grips with this right now -- starting at MWC in Barcelona at our breakfast briefing for mobile operator executives in Barcelona -- see
