Presentation Title: Carrier-grade security: A primer for telecommunications operators
Presentation Details:

Telecommunications operators are at a crossroad. After enjoying decades of steady growth in a protected sector, they now face increasingly aggressive competition from smaller players due to the deregulation wave. On the technological front, they must find answers to the threat of mobile data services such as Wi-Fi and telephony alternatives based on VoIP protocols. For the first time since they were created, they must also take the security threat seriously, as opposed to the proverbial lip service they were content with until now. This presentation will present the evolution of the security threats facing telecommunications operators, and what they must do about it.
