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
