Is your phone smart and safe?
With the growth of the smart phone market, new security issues have arisen. Dual-use devices rely on constant access to certain personal information to churn out services that are relevant to the user. Targeted marketing strategies, mobile versions of websites, social networks and search engines exploit the wealth of information available. A phone call is not simple anymore. Location, duration, identity of both parties and, at times, content is recorded. Systems put in place for effective billing and streamlining of services have become a source of risk. Managing the dynamic world of telecommunications requires a solid security strategy that cuts across the many channels between provider and end-user.
