Much of the world first became aware of the reality of information interception a number of years ago with the Edward Snowden revelations on the extent of US government eavesdropping; and the News of the World phone-hacking scandal in the UK where it was found that members of News Group International routinely hacked into people's private conversations. Since then, reports of phone hacking and communications interception are increasingly more frequent, among other hacking news, the Mirror Group settled 21 claims of phone hacking. According to insurance giant Lloyd's, companies are losing as much as $400 billion to hackers every year, with smartphones being a key target.
Mobile phones are a hotspot for hackers to intercept important information about your work and personal life. For more than 70% of US adults, smartphones are the preferred device for accessing the Internet (Gallup, 2014; company information is routinely communicated on smartphones. With the huge number of communication options on a smartphone, the attack surface for hacking and for the interception of strategic information is large and growing.
What's fueling increased mobile communications intercept is technology. The means to hack a phone, and to intercept information, is readily available to anyone. IMSI catchers, devices for intercepting, and eavesdropping on mobile phones are portable, affordable, and available for anyone to purchase on eBay, Alibaba, and many other websites. Just search for "buy an IMSI catcher".
