TRUS TALKS: VIDEO SERIES ON CYBER & TELECOMS SECURITY!
The Mobile Network Battlefield
AdaptiveMobile Security integration with Enea, GLOMO Awards & ROCCO Recognition
In light of the acquisition of AdaptiveMobile Security by Enea back in July, in this next episode of TrustTalks we will be revealing details on the company’s integration with Enea as well as the ample scope to leverage product synergies between Enea’s business units. We will also be discussing AdaptiveMobile Security’s win for Best Authentication and Security Solution for Mobile Networks at the GLOMO Awards, as well as the recent ROCCO Tier 1 signalling firewall recognition the company obtained.
TOPIC OF THE DAY
The Mobile Network Battlefield in Ukraine
Following the release of our white paper on Mobile network-enabled attacks in hybrid warfare, our Director of National Security Intelligence, Rowland Corr, will join HardenStance analyst, Patrick Donegan, in a conversation about the role the cyber realm has played in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Our speakers will begin by analyzing the role of mobile networks in both defensive and offensive operations, discussing the implications for our understanding of evolving terms like hybrid warfare and cyber wars. Additionally, we’ll touch on the lessons learned from the hybrid aspects of this invasion in terms of our approach to national security.
WHAT’S GOING ON OUT THERE?
STIR/SHAKEN and Pegasus Spyware
We will be exploring what’s going on in the cyber security space, starting with the recent FCC Plan to Impose STIR/SHAKEN on International Carriers in the US and what types of cyber-attacks we’d expect it to tackle. Also, our CSO, Simeon Coney will discuss with Patrick Donegan the latest Pegasus Spyware headlines. How can mobile operators do more to help protect their networks and subscribers from this type of cyber threat?
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.
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:
-Fraud (against the operator or the subscriber)
-Phishing* (malware delivery)
-Denial of Service
