Our Chief Consultant, Allan Dyer, spoke on "Malicious Code and Mobile Devices" at the Club eBiz Wireless Security Conference on 20th March. Viruses and Worms are currently the commonest type of security incident for desktop computers, but they have yet to make an impact on mobile devices, Mr. Dyer discussed how and when this will change.
Also speaking the same evening was Dr. Joseph Williams, Chief Architect of Sun Microsystems - he gave an overview of wireless security, and then concentrated on the vulnerabilities of IEEE 802.11 networks, "wireless Ethernet", including War Driving and WEP shortcomings.
Club eBiz is an initiative from the Department of Information Systems at City University to bring together business professionals and executives who share similar interests in electronic business. The presentation slides are available on request.
