The iPhone 4 and Mobile Security
Creating a stir in the technology world today, Steve Jobs unveiled Apple’s long-anticipated, new iPhone 4. While Jobs did not lay claims as to whether or not AT&T would continue on as the phone’s exclusive carrier, two other organizations did. According to Federal News Radio, the General Services Administration and the Department of Homeland Security approved the “first governmentwide provider of cybersecurity services under AT&T’s Networx contract.”
And in a separate piece on mobile security, Federal News Radio warned: “Network convergence could leave your phone vulnerable.”
Moving from voice to video, Wired is reporting that Federal officials have arrested an Army intelligence analyst who “boasted of giving classified US combat video and hundreds of thousands of classified State Department records to whistleblower site Wikileaks.” Meanwhile, PressTV announced that the Pentagon is hacked 6 million times daily.
So with all the latest buzz surrounding cybersecurity and the nation’s Defense, is Government Computer Networks wrong to report “Congress just doesn’t see cybersecurity’s sex appeal“?
