Mobile Network Security
This 2 day program provides a grounding for telecoms professionals wishing to review the resilience of modern mobile networks around the world.
The structure of modern mobile radio and core networks are described and possible types of attacks discussed. Attendees are assisted to develop a register of possible threats and responses for each area of the course; this could easily be used as the basis for possible test plans.
The course is very interactive with much opportunity to discuss aspects and concerns with the expert facilitator.
Who should attend?
Telecoms Professionals requiring a practical grounding in modern mobile network architectures along with the associated security risks and responses.
