FTC plans mobile security event for June 4th

The Federal Trade Commission will be holding a public event on June 4th in an effort to make the public more aware of the emerging and lingering security threats in the mobile device ecosystem.

The event will be held in the agency's Washington, D.C. conference center and will highlight data collection, advertising, and other topics such as emerging mobile threats, potential infrastructure issues, and authentication strategies for mobile devices.

Of course VPN Services are becoming more of a hot topic, especially in the mobile ecosystem, so we'll no doubt be hearing how they will increasingly come into play as privacy becomes an ever looming issue and people look for ways to protect themselves.
