Security management for a new era
The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving and growing more challenging by the day. As 5G will be the foundation for future services affecting both businesses and society, the telecom networks become a critical infrastructure that will gain even further focus of hackers.
What are the most common telecom network attacks today?
Telecom network can be vulnerable to typical attacks that we are accustomed to within the IT security space, but also specific attacks such as:
Telecom specific APTs: Long-term, targeted attacks using sophisticated techniques to gain access to the network and remain undetected for extended periods of time.
Disruption attacks: RAN, the largest attack surface of the network, can become the target of RAN specific DoS, DDoS and jamming attacks
False base stations: Mimics of legitimate cell towers intercepting and eavesdropping mobile communications.
What can we expect in a near future?
There are several different trends that together are pushing telecom security higher up on the agenda.
Growing security demands from regulators: With the advent of 5G, regulators across the globe are increasing their demands on security and security compliance.
Growing enterprise security awareness: Increasing pressure on CSPs to be able to demonstrate how they are working to ensure security.
The shift to 5G SA: This shift, which many CSPs are undertaking, will increase enterprise security complexity and require you to adopt corresponding practices.
