Telecoms

Overview

A socially important but vulnerable sector

The telecoms sector is now part of the critical infrastructure of society. By offering connectivity, people all over the world can discover, invent and share, while businesses all over the world can step into digital arenas and offer their customers a new form of service. With growing volumes of data, reliance on legacy technologies, combined with the increasing importance of cloud solutions, 5G, IoT and AI, the industry's infrastructure is among the most complex. But while internal solutions are increasing in complexity, security risks are also increasing exponentially, making telecoms a common sector for cyber criminals to target.
