Curtis Franklin, Security Editor, Light Reading

Travis Russell, Director, Telecommunications Cyber Security, Oracle Communications

Today's telecom industry has a problem – we are having to deal with critical security vulnerabilities for the first time, with limited investments and even more limited expertise. At the same time, operators worldwide are rapidly preparing to move their networks into data centers, eliminating expensive purpose-built systems. As they do, operators will find themselves dealing with even more security issues that they are not well-prepared to address. This webinar will look at the security issues faced today, and provide some insights on what operators can look forward to as they move to NFV and cloud.

We'll also cover:

  • What CSPs are doing about security and SS7
  • What lies ahead with Diameter and SIP
  • The current threats in telecom
  • The issues with NFV and cloud security
  • What operators should be focusing on

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
