Mobile Network Security Strategies:
New Threats, New Opportunities
With the evolution from 3G to LTE, the bandwidth and performance available in the network means that carriers are in the early stages of becoming fully fledged ISPs for the first time. This is exposing the mobile network to many of the same security vulnerabilities as the wireline network as well as many more that are unique to the mobile environment.
Following on from last year’s inaugural event, this second Light Reading conference on Mobile Network Security will again focus on the key role of the network in safeguarding the mobile carrier’s network assets while protecting its customers from security attacks. The conference will also consider the case for distributing and coordinating security strategies across the end-user device, the mobile network, and the cloud as carriers look to prevent attackers from triggering outages and degradations or from stealing sensitive customer information.
Carrier keynotes, Heavy Reading research, vendor perspectives, and panel discussions will address incidents of different attack types and how mobile carriers are protecting against them. They will explore the vulnerabilities of established protocols, as well as new mobile network interfaces, and the strong case for investing in network security — not just as a means of protecting traditional revenues but as a positive enabler and differentiator for capturing the promise of brand new business models in the LTE-driven mobile broadband era.
Network with key decision-makers from leading North American mobile carriers
Mobile Network Security Strategies will give you direct access to pre-qualified C-level executives, VPs, and Directors from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless.
Mobile Network Security Strategies will be an intimate conference with approximately 75 attendees.
Our pre-screened approval process will target carrier service providers in the following areas:
Mobile Security | Network Engineering | Network Operations | Network Strategy | Cloud Services
Through the presentation of original Heavy Reading research findings, spirited debate-style panels, and keynote addresses by executives from leading carriers and by John Marinho, VP Technology and Cybersecurity, CTIA, Mobile Network Security Strategies will cover these important issues:
- How do benign outages and service degradations compare with malicious security attacks?
- To what extent, if any, does the security calculus change as subscribers evolve to LTE?
- How vulnerable is the mobile network to DDoS attacks today and in the future?
- Is mobile messaging spam really worth worrying about?
- Besides the Gi or SGi, what mobile network interfaces really need protecting?
- What’s the right balance between protection in the network and in the handset?
