This year’s Counter Terrorism Conference (London, 19th–20th April 2011) looks set to be one of the largest CT events ever.

We need to keep up with new threats and challenges, and I have been asked to speak at the conference on cell/mobile phone security. My session is called “Cell Phone Hacking—The Terrorist’s Latest Playground” and is scheduled for 11:00hrs–11:20hrs on Wednesday 20th April. It will be based on research I have been conducting into the jihadist use of mobile phones to spread propaganda against a background of commoditised hacking against the GSM mobile phone network.

In addition to speaking at the conference I will be spending time at the Morrigan Partners stand (P44) discussing the issues that GSM hacking is presenting to businesses and organisations. I will be at the stand from 14:30hrs–15:30hrs on Tuesday 19th April and 12:00hrs–13:00hrs and 14:30hrs–15:30hrs on Wednesday 20th April.

If you are interested in the problem of cell/mobile phone hacking come along and have a chat at these times. I’d be happy to speak about more research I am doing and ways in which you can protect your data, systems and users from such attacks by terrorists and criminals alike.
