As communications services are more and more connected to various public or private clouds it is important to look at how to keep them secure. This can be from the remote SIP device or mobile app that connects to the hosted server, all the way through to the actual server or servers. In addition to protecting SIP endpoints, it’s also important to make sure the human-factor is aware to all the recent types and methods used by attackers to commit credit-card fraud.

This session will present some of the more-common ways to use call-centers as a proxy for placing fraudulent orders and stealing goods and how to address this kind of attacks.

As always, there will be a review of recent telecom attacks and how to protect against them.
