As with every other network there will always exist a certain risk, but we can lower this risk if this network is designed and used properly. Biggest threat is to have a wireless network that is not setup correctly (not secure).
What is your vision for the future of wireless security?
Standards for wireless security are evolving very fast. Features like EAP-TLS-MD5, 802.1x, PEAP and many others are already available on some Access Points to enhance security, while Wi-Fi is working very hard to provide interoperability for this features. Also people are starting to understand the risks involved if they use unprotected wireless solutions. I expect that growth momentum on wireless networks will be very strong.
