About the Event
Following on from two successful events in the United States, this first Light Reading conference on Mobile Network Security in Europe 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 revenue, but also as a positive enabler and differentiator for capturing the promise of brand new business models in the LTE-driven mobile broadband era.
Why You Should Attend
- Security was once the preserve of a handful of security specialists. In the transition to the all-IP mobile network, security starts to impinge on most, if not all, roles within the operator.
- Understand the different threats that the mobile network is subject to.
- Learn about the balance that the mobile operators see between their responsibility to protect the end users and the end users' responsibility to protect themselves.
- Understand the respective cases for deploying threat protection in the device, in the mobile network, and in the cloud.
- Explore the extent to which the operators view security as a revenue opportunity rather than just a cost.
- Learn how much the security calculus alters in the evolution from 3G to LTE.
- Discuss how virtualization creates both new threats and new opportunities for the mobile operator from a security standpoint.
Who Should Attend
- Mobile operator personnel in operational, planning, sales, and marketing as well as security roles.
