Your mobile phone today is a treasure trove for any hacker wanting to take control of your digital life. What could possibly go wrong - if I could be you?

Based on many years of real-world research and a range of newspaper arcticles published in Norway earlier this year, I will explain port-out & simswap attacks, identify theft, spoofing, phone fraud and other ways to attack your phone, your digital life and becoming YOU.

Finally I will put these possibilities into financial & political perspectives with associated risks, and provide some guidance on how to prepare for a future that is already here.
