Jeff Peters asks several security experts "what stands out when you think of cybersecurity 2-3 years down the road?" in this article on HackSurfer: Experts Weigh In: Cybersecurity trends 2-3 years down the road?CounterTack Chief Researcher Sean Bodmer says
“I believe Wi-Fi and wireless in and of itself is going to be one of the biggest problems that we’re going to have to deal with, especially if the FCC implements [it's plan to relieve crowed Wi-Fi networks] across the nation. It’s going to open up so no matter where you are your device can be reached, you can be tracked, and we already have the problems now with cellular tracking. That was a big thing at DEFCON and Black Hat a couple years ago. Well, when they open up all of these phones to Wi-Fi and everyone is walking around with an IP address and driving around with an IP address or jogging around with an IP address, there are a whole bunch of privacy and security concerns.” - See more at: http://hacksurfer.com/amplifications/69#sthash.RP5bOFaY.dpuf
