KoolSpan to Sponsor Mobile Security Symposium

Security experts to disuss risks and protection of voice and data.

Bethesda, Md., January 24, 2011 – KoolSpan, Inc., a leading innovator of simple secure connectivity solutions that seamlessly protect voice and data communications, today announced it will sponsor a Mobile Security Symposium February 14, 2011 at the W Hotel in San Francisco.

Mobile security experts will discuss the threat envelope surrounding mobile devices, from voice to data. A series of focused panels will allow attendees to learn about effective protective measures and best practice strategies.

“Business use of mobile phones is pervasive, creating a very large target for attack” said KoolSpan CEO Tony Fascenda. “The threat to mobile voice communication is not broadly understood. Enterprises make substantial investments to protect information in data communications, while much of the same information is transmitted unprotected in mobile phone conversations. The Mobile Security Symposium will address this often overlooked mobility risk.”

KoolSpan, along with co-sponsors AT&T, SRA, Mobile Active Defense, and Symantec, developed this half-day educational event for information security professionals. The Mobile Security Symposium will take place at the start of the 2011 RSA Conference.
