It’s a stark reality: for Network operators, a cyber attack is ‘when’, not ‘if’.
As network operators embark on ambitious and technology-led organisational transformation, they become increasingly exposed to a wider set of sophisticated and motivated threat actors that find ever more innovative ways to cause harm.
The net effect of this is an increased risk to unprepared operators, to their customers and to the resilience of critical national infrastructure.
Many cyber security functions are struggling to keep pace with the business, and current ways of working, security technologies and operational teams are not sufficiently equipped to enable the business to transform securely.
In A tipping point for Telco cyber security we talk about four priorities security leaders need to be adopting to succeed in this complex and high-risk environment:
- getting the right balance between risk and compliance
- establishing a cyber-resilience capability
- building automation and intelligence capability
- and working collaboratively with the wider business.
