Hey hey, Risky Business is up, sponsored this week by the fine folks at Tenable Network Security. On this week's show we speak to counter-surveillance guru Les Goldsmith from ESD Group Australia about extracting data from mobile phones. If you're someone in a sensitive job, you might want to think twice about taking your phone with you to the Beijing Olympics, Goldsmith says.

Risky Business 66 also features part two of our interview with wireless guru Neal Wise of Assurance.com.au. In this week's section Neal discusses 802.11n headaches, companies becoming complacent after implementing 802.1x, bad security in the name of compliance and more.

This week's sponsor guest is Marcus Ranum from Tenable Network Security, who argues penetration tests seldom represent true value.

During the podcast you'll hear Les Goldsmith mention a National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) paper on mobile phone forensics. It's here (pdf). You'll also hear Patrick Gray mention Federal Agent Nigel Phair's Pacific Islands Computer Crime and Security Survey. That one's here (pdf).
