Businesses Fear VOIP Flaws

Another concern was that as IM allows encrypted data traffic it could be an undetectable source of data leakage. The view on VoIP is that although there has been some adoption, it is not yet a widely deployed technology in corporates although it was being used a lot by travelling executives and the story is very different in the SME area where many have rushed to take the opportunity to reduce costs. There are similar security issues relating to VoIP regarding encrypted traffic and also the potential for SPIM to clog VoIP communications and cause similar problems to those caused by SPAM in email.“The convergence of communications networks, devices and content has enabled service providers to deliver newer, faster and more advanced services including voice, data, video and applications – all over a single IP network. “While these rapid technology advancements have tremendous benefits, they have raised questions from policymakers about whether security can keep up,” said Marika Konings, director of European Affairs for the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA). “It is vital for the security industry to stay engaged with our policy makers as they evaluate the impact of these new technologies and it is exciting that a premier event such as Infosecurity Europe is providing an opportunity to explore the current legislative climate.” Sam Jeffers, Event Manager for Infosecurity Europe 2007 said, “The adoption of new communication technologies is an essential component for the agile enterprise that wishes to gain competitive advantage, however, these technologies also provide vectors for new security threats and if theyare not monitored and controlled can also create a serious compliance issue. “Those tasked with ensuring that new technologies are deployed securely will benefit from the Education programme at the event and the can select the most comprehensive gathering of information security vendors in Europe.”
