Importance of Establishing Security and Trust for the Telecom Industry
The Telecommunication industry enables connections around the world. Be it private communications or Business interactions, the telecom industry helps us to stay connected and initiate and execute day-to-day issues that require the medium of communication. Therefore, the Telecom Industry has become a vital part of our lives and deals with business and individuals’ requirements.
Telecom companies build, control, and operate critical infrastructure and applications widely used to communicate and store large amounts of sensitive data. Thus, because of this accessibility, they often fall under the radar of cyberattacks and malware dysfunction.
In recent years, technology has developed significantly. The world holds remarkable growth, so the threat landscape has been through many changes. The threat of Cyber-attacks against the telecom industry is significant. Given that this industry controls a vast majority of complex and critical national infrastructure, the impact of a successful attack is not only substantial but extensive.
Telecommunication threat maps and cyber risk systems are merging. The attack’s size and scope can significantly damage the organization’s reputation and the infrastructure’s confidentiality. It can further fuel customer concerns about privacy, becoming a significant issue for the entire telecom sector. Hence, protecting the digital environments and critical infrastructure from emerging cyber threats is imperative.
