In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Federal Communications Commission will host a technology exhibition and presentations on mobile security on Wednesday, October 17, 2012.

The day-long event is part of the FCC’s ongoing effort to promote awareness of cybersecurity threats and solutions in partnership with industry and others in the public sector. Given America’s growing reliance on mobile technology, and the importance of America’s digital infrastructure to the economy, it is imperative that stakeholders work together to ensure the security, reliability, and resiliency of these tools and infrastructure.

The event will be held in the Technology Experience Center on the TW level of the FCC’s headquarters, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554. Demonstrations of mobile computing and security technologies will be available from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. In addition to the demonstrations, there will also be several presentations*:
