THe Importance of telecom network security testing
It is becoming more challenging for organizations to secure their technology ecosystems due to the rapid rise in telecom vulnerabilities caused by the rapid advancement of technology and coming innovation. Because of open gateways to the technology across the telecom industry to adhere to compliance rules, risk mitigation has become even more crucial.
While some attacks are motivated by retaliation, a problem in the telecom industry is that many employees and insiders are utterly unaware that they constitute a flaw. Few professionals in the sector are trained in cyber security procedures.
