How can companies ensure that the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy balances user privacy with company security? And what can companies do to protect their staff against malware and data theft threats when many people are using company and personal devices together?
The IET will be exploring these questions and many more at their Security for Mobile Devices event, taking place in London on 20 June. The keynote address will be given by current IET President and Vice President of Public Affairs at Telefonica, Mike Short; and the day will also feature senior representatives of the GSM Association, Metropolitan Police, Mobile Data Association, IBM and Trend Micro.
The seminar chair is David Rogers of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, who said:
“Mobile devices are becoming much more enticing for cyber criminals and it won’t be a surprise that the bad guys use their own mobile devices as much as anyone. GSM has been the underpinning technology for most mobility for a while now but how long can we rely on security designed well over 20 years ago?
This day will bring together government speakers and leading security professionals to discuss developments in mobile forensics, creating effective and sustainable policies and addressing challenges for the future. I’m delighted to be involved and hope to welcome key players from around the industry to London on 20 June.”
The Security for Mobile Devices seminar will be held at RIBA, London, UK on 20 June 2012. You can book to attend online at http://conferences.theiet.org/mobile/index.cfm?origin=pro-security-zone
