Who is responsible for the protection of a nation’s critical communications infrastructure?
From our extensive global experience, we believe to properly secure the national critical communications infrastructure of any country requires a multi-layered approach. Collaboration is essential between private and public sector bodies (national regulators, mobile operators and governments) in the development of effective, consistently applied security measures. This includes the sharing of threat related intelligence and facilitating the development of cross-sector practices in securing any nation’s key communications assets and infrastructure.
What are common mobile network attacks as part of a hybrid warfare strategy?
Attackers can target core network vulnerabilities to attain and further amplify advantage in offensive military operations. The form that cyber network attacks can take varies, but at a high level the following are possible:
- Surveillance/location tracking
- Message/Call/Data Interception
- Fraud (against the operator or the subscriber)
- Phishing* (malware delivery)
- Denial of Service
- Information harvesting
