The cyber vulnerabilities in the Telecom sector and TSAROLABS solution methods!

Telecom operators face a variety of security-related vulnerabilities due to overall infrastructure complexity, supply chain issues, network misconfigurations, and privacy concerns. To avoid costly downtime, service disruption, and data theft, network operators must identify and fix potential vulnerabilities in their network infrastructure that hackers can exploit.

Hackers often target the Signaling System No. 7 (SS7) and Diameter protocols telecommunications carriers use. As part of this strategy, malicious actors intercept her Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) code to gain access to the user’s account.

TSAROLABS solution approach

  • To combat this threat, operators must take security measures to monitor connections, outbound traffic, and the network infrastructure.
  • Conduct regular network penetration tests and install anomaly detection systems to identify potential threats better.
  • To mitigate the risk of DDoS threats, carriers can implement their web application firewall technology or content delivery network to filter out unauthorized traffic.
  • Redirecting DDoS-generated traffic to a dedicated “scrubbing center” that removes malicious traffic and allows regular traffic.

The transformative nature of 5G brings exciting new opportunities for network operators and opens the door to new security vulnerabilities.

Our Next-generation wireless technologies support more interconnected devices than ever, increasing the communications industry’s total malicious threat surface area. Carriers should consider possible vulnerabilities within their 5G systems architecture with the support of TSAROLABS service solutions, including Software configuration.

A hacker could modify software or network components to reduce security measures further, install viruses, or grant unauthorized users administrative permissions. Network security – Malicious attackers can target the connectivity between mobile devices and small cell towers to intercept, alter, or destroy critical data communications.

Network slicing – Slicing 5G networks into multiple sections adds complexity to the overall infrastructure and allows hackers to target and access data from specific slices. Legacy equipment – Since 5G builds on existing 4G hardware, carrier infrastructures likely contain parts that aren’t updated to modern security standards that can be exploited. Spectrum sharing –Carriers providing 5G services will probably use a variety of spectrum frequencies, ranging from low to high, which may allow the attackers to interrupt important communications avenues.

Software DefinedNetworking (SDN) – SDN allows network operators to configure network routes easily, but hackers can embed code into the SDN controller supplicant that degrades performance and limits bandwidth. To mitigate the risks posed by 5G, network operators should consider:

The importance of web penetration testing for your organization

Web penetration testing, also known as ethical hacking, simulates a cyber attack on a website or web application to identify vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit. By uncovering these vulnerabilities, organizations can take steps to fix them before they can be used to compromise the security of their systems and sensitive data.

Why web penetration testing is essential for every organization?

Identify and fix vulnerabilities: By simulating a real-world attack, web penetration testing can help organizations to identify and fix vulnerabilities in their web applications and infrastructure that a hacker could exploit.

Improve security: Web penetration testing can help organizations improve their web-based systems’ overall safety and protect against cyber attacks by identifying and fixing vulnerabilities.

Compliance: Many regulations, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR, require regular penetration testing to ensure the security of sensitive data.

Protect against data breaches: Web penetration testing can help organizations prevent data breaches by identifying and fixing vulnerabilities in their web-based systems before hackers can exploit them.

Maintaining trust: By showing customers and stakeholders that an organization takes security seriously and is proactive in identifying and fixing vulnerabilities, web penetration testing can help keep the organization’s trust.

In summary, web penetration testing is an essential aspect of maintaining the security of your organization’s web-based systems and protecting against cyber attacks.
