“There’s no silver bullet solution with cybersecurity, a layered defence is the only viable defence”. - James Scott
The Telecom sector has always been on the top of the list of cyberattackers because they build, control and operate critical infrastructure. The impact of any such attack can be very high and far-reaching.
With the help of the telecom industries and using their infrastructure, we send our videos, audio and text around the globe. Making it easy for businesses to thrive globally. Securing this is very crucial for the growth of every economy.
The telecommunication industry has a long list of vulnerabilities because of its vast coverage area of services that it provides to almost every sector in the economy. These may range from high to low impact attacks coming from low-level criminals to high-level sophisticated threat actors, with high chances of successful breaches not getting detected at all.
The Telecom sector is expected to meet the increasing demands of higher bandwidth and reliability. The increased presence of new assets over the communication protocols has enlarged the defence perimeter. One has to change the approach from reactive to proactive for being more strong and reliable.
Identifying the high to low-risk areas and making strategies to mitigate the risks associated.
1. Network Security Assessment
2. Firewall Security Assessment
3. Incident Response
Constant monitoring of the network for detecting any suspicious activity and taking measures to lower the associated risks.
1. Application Security Testing
2. Network security Testing
3. Firewall penetration testing
Safeguarding the network and services along with the data is a must. Following the compliance and regulations strengthen the organisation's network and brand image with the clients.
