David Rogers “Mobile Security”

Never has mobile device security been more important than it has today. Or is that tomorrow? Being at the cutting edge of technology means constantly trying to be one step ahead of the bad guys. Second guessing the hacking community is difficult and there are many hidden flaws ready to make a security engineer's life more interesting. The Chair of the GSMA's Device Security Group, David Rogers will explain what action the mobile industry has taken in the past, how devices are secured today and what new nightmares await us.

David Rogers is a mobile phone security expert who runs Copper Horse Solutions Ltd, a software and security company currently focusing on IoT security research and products, based in Windsor, UK. He also chairs the Device Security Group at the GSM Association and teaches the Mobile Systems Security course at the University of Oxford. He has worked in the mobile industry for over 16 years in security and engineering roles. Prior to this he worked in the semiconductor industry. His book ‘Mobile Security: A Guide for Users’ was published in 2013.

David holds an MSc in Software Engineering from the University of Oxford and a HND in Mechatronics from the University of Teesside.
