Cybersecurity solutions for Telecommunications
Telecommunication providers and critical infrastructures need to assure security and trusted communication for their subscribers, customers, and stakeholders.
The world has experienced a phenomenal increase in mobile devices, smart IoT devices, data traffic subscribers, and SIM connections. This means that network operators now have a far greater spectrum of services and in turn, need to carry a much higher data load. Simultaneously, this also increases the attack surface for cyber-attacks and eavesdropping attempts.
Mobile network providers need to fulfill these commercially viable services and ongoing demands whilst guaranteeing a reliable, secure network to all stakeholders - participants and subscribers. Furthermore, the telecommunications industry is a critical infrastructure that needs to be designed to withstand various types of cyber-attacks.
Data security, privacy by design, and infrastructure durability are imperative - assuring customer protection, data privacy, strong authentication, device security, and service reliability. Given the severe consequences of a security breach and damage to reputation, it’s critical to build on reliable and proven cybersecurity solutions for telecommunication in unison with secure 5G to protect against espionage, data theft, and downtime.
In addition to ensuring secure networks, providers of telecommunication services are required to support law enforcement agencies in their fight against crime and terrorism. To meet these obligations, network operators and telecommunications service providers must implement interception facilities in their networks.
The legal framework of lawful interception (LI) is stipulated by national laws and regulations, and international standards constitute the foundation for the technical implementation and for the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and service providers.
