Keeping telecommunications secure

The WannaCry attack on the British national health service and many other organisations around the world has focussed minds on the possibility of major disruption of a nation’s critical infrastructure from cyber attack.

Any disruption to Telecommunications services would obviously have a significant impact on all our lives. But cyber attack is just one of the threats that telecoms operators must guard against.

PTT is currently developing an online course that provides an overview of the threats faced by telecommunications providers and describes ways of reducing the vulnerability of telecoms services to unauthorised access, disruption and personal data theft. The course also gives examples of how criminals can misuse telecoms services for financial gain and describes how to detect and block such activities.

This Telecoms security online course is suitable for all those involved in ensuring service availability and data protection in the telecoms sector.

To receive further information about this course including its release date, please contact PTT.
