Wireless Crime

Wireless computers allow greater freedom but is our personal and financial information at risk of electronic attack? The public are invited to the Dana Centre for an interactive demonstration and debate on how cyber criminals can hack into computers and how individuals can fight back. This event is one in a series of debates on crime.

This event will give the public an insight into the growing phenomenon of wireless internet crime. Part of the evening is a demonstration of how easy it is for information to be illegally taken from a person’s laptop and how individuals can fight back.

During the second part of the evening the audience are invited to cross-examine the panel of experts about a wide range of computer security topics from wireless security to identity theft and ethical hacking to cyber terrorism.

Experts on hand include: Dr Phil Nobles of the Information Systems Department of Cranfield University who is a leading expert on wireless internet and cyber crime, a representative from the National High Tech Crime Unit and Peter Martin from ACSN, who specialises in internet security.
