[Internet Society Blogs] If you’re at Mobile World Congress, Internet security is your business

This week the mobile industry will meet at their annual gathering in Barcelona and I am excited to be there. Mobile has changed my life as it has changed that of the 63% of the world population. For the last two decades, I and billions of people around the world have been able to be reached by others and to reach others almost anytime and anywhere. This was unimaginable just three decades ago.

Mobile has also become the method of choice to access the Internet. In fact, very often it is the only method to access the Internet. Without mobile technology, it would have been impossible to reach internet access rates close to 30% in Africa within just a few years.
