ICYMI: CONGRESSMAN LIEU & LOOKOUT CEO JIM DOLCE HILL OP-ED WARNS OF CYBER WARFARE

Online at The Hill, Mr. Lieu and Mr. Dolce urge Congress and the next administration to do more to address the issues of mobile security and warns of the consequences of not doing so.

 

“Given the reliance on mobile apps for everything from buying products to corresponding with friends to getting work done on the go, if an enemy or criminal gains access to someone’s cellphone, they gain access to all aspects of that person’s life — both work and personal.”

 “Just clicking a link can infect an iPhone with the spyware and lead to total data compromise, including the theft of every email, text and password typed on the device and any verbal conversation uttered in its vicinity post-infection. In minutes, and without any indication, your own phone can become someone else’s spy.”

“Mobile is the new frontier for cyber war. It’s time to update our defenses with the right kind of armor.”
