Cybersecurity for Telecommunications
Securing telecom data, applications and networks against the most advanced cyber threats
Telecommunication companies are susceptible to cyber-attacks because not only do they build and operate key infrastructure that is widely used but they also store large amounts of sensitive customer information. According to recent studies, 43% of telecommunications companies have suffered a DNS-malware attack and on average, telecoms only apply 4 of the 11 recommended critical patches in 2018 making them particularly vulnerable to zero-day attacks.
The most important factor in a telecoms corporate security strategy is a comprehensive framework of business processes that together with wide-ranging technical security controls fight advanced threats. Gridware is a pioneer in helping major telco’s in adapting their security strategies to defend against advanced threats and attacks.

In June 2015, Australian Internet Service Provider, iiNet, admits to a large-scale privacy breach after more than 30,000 customer passwords were accessed. iiNet’s CIO, Matthew Toohey voiced that they were aware of the incident which resulted from hackers obtaining unauthorised access to old customer information through a legacy system belonging to iiNet. Since the breach, iiNet has taken their outdated system down and contacted the affected customers to change their passwords.
