I’m Upcoming commission: mobile security for The Times

I’m writing piece on mobile security for a Raconteur report for The Times – synopsis below. 

Given the tight turnaround on these reports, if you want to submit comments, case studies or propose an interview please please contact me by 1600 GMT on Fri 12 February (late submissions won’t be acknowledged, sorry)

Mobile devices are more than just portable desktop computers. They not only facilitate intrusion by highly accessible wireless means, but they are packed with dozens of radios and sensors along with many pre-loaded apps that continuously collect user information, including texts, contact lists, GPS locations, transmissions and more. This article should provide an overview of the vulnerable assets mobile offers and highlight just how difficult mobile is to secure.
