Mobile Network Operators

Dangerous scam messages using your network to target victims risk the security, financial welfare, and personal privacy of mobile subscribers. The presence of these SMS spam  threats leads to additional customer complaints and erodes trust in the network, damaging brand reputation and risking significant financial losses caused by customer churn. If a mobile network is not properly secured, operators also run the risk of their network being used to target subscribers on other mobile networks, having further implications for the operator’s reputation.
