In this informative webinar, participants will get an understanding of:
- The critical security incidents facing telcos every day globally and how operators can remain vigilant in order to support revenue growth
- How to get transparent TCO (total cost of ownership) estimates and significant return on investment while staying in budget
- The steps required to guarantee compliance with an ever-growing list of requirements in the mobile sector, including 5G and Internet of Things (IoT)
During the webinar, Michael Downs will explain how telecommunication providers can establish ongoing security and data protection processes, and shift from a check-box approach to proactive protection – an essential step for operators in order to effectively fight modern threats.
