At long last more people are realising that 2011 is quickly becoming the tipping point for mobile security issues, as reported here.

This is an area I am actively researching and I will be producing a range of reports and recommendations over the next year including an in-depth comparative analysis of the different OS platforms as part of some academic research I am completing. I am covering both active and passive attacks ranging from GSM air interface attacks through to the use of Trojan malware to target users.

My interest is in best practices for mitigating these attacks and what steps users, businesses, developers and organisations need to take to secure their smartphones.

If you are active in this area as a researcher, vendor or consultant do get in touch so we can share ideas.

Its going to be a very, very busy year.
