In 2017, over a third of the world’s population is projected to own a smartphone, with an estimated total of almost 2.6 billion smartphone users across the globe. A majority of these smartphones will support Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE), also referred to as 4G technology. This evolution in the cellular networks, which is moving away from traditional circuit-switched services, towards a packet-switched network, resembles the Internet. As a result, all of the same vulnerabilities associated the Internet apply to wireless smart phones.
Just as the internet is exposed to cyber-attacks (similar to what we heard about with Revenue Canada and their online tax filing system this year), this dramatic shift to a packet switched core network for mobile smart phones opens up a number of new areas for cyber criminals to attack the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and their customers. Malware on the smart phone, as well as applications built to exploit a lack of visibility in the mobile network, are evolving and leaving most corporate clients vulnerable to attack. Securing Mobile assets is the next big challenge for small and medium business In Canada and around the world. Mobile security threats is real area of concern for many small and medium businesses.
