Signaling Security beyond the Firewall

Agenda

Signaling Security beyond the Firewall

In today’s world, privacy and cyber security are headline-grabbing issues. Until recently, the theme of signaling security was relatively obscure and mostly followed by specialists within the telecommunications industry. However, over the last few months that has changed dramatically. There is an ever-growing focus on this subject.

What can you expect from the event:

  • Learn about real life Signaling attacks
  • How to address the Signaling Threat landscape
  • Regain control and fully monetize your SMS traffic
  • How to deploy a layer of security for voice service threats such as CLI spoofing, robocalling, wangiri fraud…
  • Hear about security approaches to IoT and 5G enablement
