Leveraging cloud and other innovative tech to combat smartphone fraud

Smartphones are the center of our world, but, unfortunately, they are also the latest vector of attack for many criminals—and the number and severity of attacks is growing. So, smartphone security has become a hot issue across the globe. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Kevin L. Jackson about how innovative companies—some at the behest of government agencies—are leveraging cloud, blockchain, AI/ML, and crowd-sourcing to combat smartphone hacking, phishing, and counterfeiting.


Your world is your smartphone. And that represents your personal communications network, and today it's under vicious attack because that's where the money is.

Kevin L. Jackson is the host of the Digital Transformer podcast. He provides consulting and digital media services to leading technology companies. His client list includes Microsoft, AT&T, AT&T Business, and IBM. He also serves as an adjunct professor at Tulane University.
