Invisible networks are proliferating across the world from hotspots to corporate WLANs to RFID compatibility in the warehouse. While unable to be seen by the naked eye, hackers see these networks as a new opportunity to access corporate data and make considerable profit. If a security strategy isn't considered as part of the development of invisible networks, companies will find little luxury in their new found flexibility if a data breach occurs.

The session will examine tools that are designed to exploit three of the most popular wireless networks, Wifi, BlueTooth and RFID, and discuss the important wireless security best practices that will help secure the invisible networks.

The presentation will conclude with a discussion of security best practices for countering potential attacks through the different types of wireless communications introduced earlier. Building a layered approach to wireless security is where secure communication begins. Locking down devices and communication between devices is a start; however, organizations must also have visibility into their wireless network to understand where breaches are occurring.
