David Heath

David Heath has had a long and varied career in the IT industry having worked as a Pre-sales Network Engineer (remember Novell NetWare?), General Manager of IT&T for the TV Shopping Network, as a Technical manager in the Biometrics industry, and as a Technical Trainer and Instructional Designer in the industrial control sector. In all aspects, security has been a driving focus. Throughout his career, David has sought to inform and educate people and has done that through his writings and in more formal educational environments.
For some years, researchers have been able to demonstrate that the primary encryption scheme for GSM phones had “issues.”  Presentations in the past week at two major security conferences have turned those issues into an effective hardware solution.
