What can you do to protect against the threat of a "mobile cyberwar catastrophe"? One safe bet is Orderman radio technology: We boast 17 years of commercial experience and 70,000 handhelds, with zero incidents.

 

Over the past few weeks and months, there have been several data security scandals reported in the media. Even in Austria, offshoots of the international hacker group known as Anonymous have attacked the servers of many organizations linked to the government such as the Federal Economic Chamber or the Regional Health Insurance Fund for Tirol. And in July, for instance, the homepage of GIS (Gebühren Info Service, the Austrian broadcast licensing agency) was defaced. On September 26, 2011, the group AnonAustria posted via Twitter the personal data of 25,000 members of the police force. The list of international victims includes mainly political and government-related organizations, media giants and industrial companies.

 

Experts in the field of data security warn of further attacks. Dietmar Kenzle of Imperva states in a Funkschau interview: "Hackers always devise new ways of getting at sensitive data." Richard Clarke, former US security consultant even speaks of an impending major "cyberwar catastrophe".

 

However, we don't want to paint too gloomy a picture. Instead, we want to raise awareness around an important issue. Ironically, the internet contains many tips about data security: The Institute for Internet Security offers an extensive platform, covering topics such as WLAN and Bluetooth security.

 

Orderman clients can rest assured. The 70,000 handheld units in use daily feature especially good protection thanks to their 433 MHz radio technology. Since the launch of the first Orderman 17 years ago, we have yet to experience an incident. Corporate spokesperson Andreas Neuhofer explains the reason for Orderman's success: "In contrast to WLAN, our radio system is proprietary and is not standardized. This ensures hackers don't stand a chance with our systems. And data security will continue to be a top priority at Orderman during the next 17 years."
