Data-Savvy 202: End-to-End Security *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

With the explosive growth of the Internet and mobile devices and applications, cybersecurity has become a hot topic among industries, technologists, regulators, and consumers alike. Security threats proliferate from traditional PCs, servers, and the Internet, to mobile devices, mobile applications, and mobile networks, prompting the security community to accelerate their development of security solutions. Operators with network and IT infrastructures are in a unique position to provide security solutions to address some of the security risks. As such, operators need to be able to speak the language of security with accuracy and confidence. End-to-End Security provides a foundational understanding of the security terms and concepts likely to arise in discussions with customers. Throughout the session, practical examples illustrate the concepts.
