Managing the Increase in Entry Points
Security or performance? This is a key question for all telco operators as security concerns within the network have grown exponentially. With new architectures ‘flat’ in the migration to 4G, LTE security of both voice and data traffic currently ends at the base station. But what is the best course of action and how will security measures affect network performance?
Back for a second year, Network Security Summit takes place at the Radisson Blu in Berlin on 7th April. Key themes including:
- Mobile terminal threats and vulnerabilities
- Protecting Network & Customer Infrastructure
- BYOD: The Threats and the Opportunities for Carriers
- DDoS threat to IP Gateway
There are many important security issues being raised and topics that merit attention:
I’d highlight infrastructure weakness and the importance of correct security management of networks, privacy of the customer information, Cybersecurity, and the security of the device itself. Smartphones now have a number of attack vectors and access methods, are capable of running programs can be affected by malware, used for sensitive company and personal information, and used for many purposes such as banking, payments and shopping. We are also seeing uses such as smart meters, intelligent transport and medical, all of which require secure development and deployment.
I will be looking forward to hearing a stimulating and interesting range of expert speakers talking about these subjects and more, and seeing you all at the forum.
