SUMMARY

This GSMS report about the security threat landscape in the mobile telecommunications industry reviews the main security threats affecting the sector.

The paper aims at giving an overview of these threats and offering remedial advice and recommendations. Each of the document’s sections focuses on a different type of threat: supply chain threats, privacy and data protection, signaling service threats, cloud threats, IoT threats, and human and device threats.

Regarding supply chain threats, the research explains that failure to manage the supply chain can impact on the brand’s reputation and trust and can end up translating into significant costs to the operator.

When it comes to data protection and data privacy, the document indicates that legislation that limits data flow could cause inefficiencies for the operator’s network and make it more vulnerable. The report points out that this could be a security threat in the future - laws that restrict the flow of data reduce the operator’s overarching view of their network, which can cause inefficiencies and increase the opportunity for an attacker to go undetected. A future threat is that to protect the privacy and security of citizens’ data, legislative bodies will develop legislation resulting in data flows being restricted.

According to recent surveys mentioned in this research more than two-thirds of firms considered IaaS and SaaS cloud security to be among the main concerns. Regarding IoT threats, the document explains that this would normally come from attackers taking advantage of factory default or poorly designed devices. The study also takes a look at human and device threats and examines the main security threats in the near future.
