Today, the development of wireless technologies raises a number of problems, although threats and risks associated with wireless technologies are under-researched. The current study focuses on the analysis of the current development of wireless technologies and existing risks and threats. Methods used in the study are interviews, questionnaires and focus groups. Subjects involved in the study were IT professionals, experts in wireless technologies, and average users. The study findings prove the fact that the major threats wireless technologies are exposed to are human-related mainly, including hacking/cracking and illegal computer activities. In addition, it is possible to identify natural disasters as potential threats to the stable functioning of wireless technologies. The study concludes that the enhancement of wireless technologies is needed along with the development of new information systems protecting wireless technologies from external threats.
