|Securing the Borderless NetworkAdaptiveMobile will host an interactive panel session and networking lunch. The panel session will see recognised industry leaders discuss the challenges facing operators to protect the “borderless network” in an increasingly open and dynamic marketplace where borders are no longer delineated by traditional parameters and fraud, hacking and malware are an everyday threat. AdaptiveMobile will also be unveiling new research highlighting the cross-border nature of attacks within channels and geographies.
This is not going to be a session driven by PowerPoint – rather an interactive panel discussion where leading industry experts including Verizon, PhonepayPlus and Syniverse, amongst others, will share their organisation’s insights and experiences on mobile security; how they believe it is going to evolve, the challenges and opportunities presented by this evolution and the role that each member of the industry needs to fulfill.

|Consumer Mobility and Privacy: Monetization without AlienationThere are now more mobile-connected devices on the earth than people; by 2016 there will be an estimated 1.4 mobile devices per person, creating an incredible opportunity for vendors and services companies alike, but at what cost?Everywhere we look, companies are tracking our whereabouts and behaviours through the multiple devices we use to access the internet. But there is a fine line to tread between adding value and privacy infringement.This panel session will bring together industry experts to discuss how far companies can go to monetize mobility whilst maintaining users’ privacy. The underlying question – is it just a matter of time before consumers turn off and take back control of their online identity?
