This White Paper describes eight very different security incidents that had a variety of impacts on telcos and their customers in several different countries during 2019 and 2020.
AdaptiveMobile Security has contributed to this white paper to help the mobile operator industry by explaining some of the cyber security incidents that have impacted operators and their customers recently.
Recent cyber security incidents demonstrate how vulnerable Telcos and their customers are to a wide variety of threats including Signalling Attacks, DDoS, and ransomware.
Most telco security incidents arise despite factors such as 3GPP security standards; Vendor supply chain risks; and advanced nation state threats.
As the telecom industry evolves, a more rigorous telco security strategy is needed to address complex and changing vulnerabilities.
