Why secure communication is vital
Stephen Komorek, Conflict International’s US Operations Director, has been speaking to Blackberry’s ThreatVector blog ahead of next week’s Blackberry Security Summit.
In the Case Study, available to read in full here, Stephen describes how many organizations have failed to keep up with advances in signal intelligence capabilities that could leave them vulnerable to economic theft and espionage.
He tells Blackberry: “A lot of people don’t realize how exposed they actually are. Surveillance tools are both incredibly advanced and increasingly easy to come by, and bad actors exist in abundance – state, non-state, and corporate alike.”
The ‘all-virtual’ Blackberry Security Summit on October 6th and 7th features industry leaders from around the world sharing expertise and best practice on business security, cryptojacking, business agility and business continuity.
Stephen, along with David Wiseman, VP Secure Communications Blackberry, will be hosting a session on day one of the summit entitled Protect Mobile Communications with SecuSUITE. Consumer apps such as WhatsApp and Signal are not appropriate to secure business communications from interception and contact spoofing. The session will break down how Conflict International deployed BlackBerry SecuSUITE quickly to ensure security, protection and safety for its teams.
In all, there will be more than 50 sessions streamed into the Security Summit from around the world. Registration and further details are available from Blackberry’s events page here.
