Telecom Security

In the rush to increase market share and reduce costs, telecom security is often overlooked or kept on the backburner. However, cybercriminals don’t care for such economic realities, and they have begun to increasingly target telecom infrastructure.

This combined with increasing regulations towards telecom security have created quite a challenge that telecommunication companies are seeking to address. Traditional threats such as war dealing and toll fraud are still a problem, yet now are joined by threats such as registration high jacking and denial of service (DoS) attacks, which telecom providers are simply not able to prevent on their own.

At Cybernetic Global Intelligence we provide custom and cost effective solutions to help mitigate security threats and provide clarity to top management and security teams. We can also work with you IT department to implement solutions such as SIEM and Cyber-Ark to address specific challenges.
