Why Study Mobile Communications and Security at UL?

Today, at the start of the 21st century, computers, networks and mobile devices are everywhere. We rely on them for our banking, for our shopping, to store and send all kinds of sensitive and important data. But are they safe? When you use an ATM machine, how do you know that your transaction is secure? When you order groceries, how can you trust the system not to give away your credit card details? Thanks to mobile devices, people can now be contactable wherever they are. Not only that, we can work from many locations using Smart Mobile devices as we now have access to the web from wherever we happen to be.
