AT&T executive John Stankey today revealed that the company plans to introduce security services for its consumer customers starting in 2012. AT&T already offers security services for its business customers, but with the rising adoption of smartphones, AT&T says more attacks on consumers are occurring. "Hackers always go to where there's a base of people to attack," Stankey said at a Reuters event today. "I do believe it'll become as relevant in the mobile space as it is today in the desktop." So far, widespread losses to hackers on consumer smartphones have been small. As they grow larger in scale, Stankey believes the issue will gain enough visibility to become important to those wishing to be protected. Stankey didn't provide details on how the service would work.
