At Mobile World Congress 2018, you’ll see innovative solutions and products within the telecom industry, but what about the security behind them? Telecommunications service providers are expanding service offerings across a spectrum ranging from access to content. The network is a strategic asset that delivers better service and higher revenues, but with that comes a host of new problems, including the risk of cyberattacks aimed at vulnerable access points, insider threats that can take out customer data, credit card and identity theft, and more. These increasing threats are the drivers behind new regulations, such as the European Union’s GDPR mandate. In this new era, service providers must rethink the way they protect data and networks.
Have no fear, Cyphre will be there
Cyphre’s team of cybersecurity experts will be attending MWC throughout the entire duration of the event, happening from February 28 to March 1. Our experts will be available to discuss how to protect consumer and enterprise data in-transit and at-rest across global fixed, cellular, and Wi-Fi cloud network infrastructures, the Internet of Things, and private or hybrid clouds.
Mobile World Congress attendees can schedule a meeting to speak with our experts at the conference.
As cybersecurity threats gain momentum in scope and sophistication, Mobile World Congress sessions will address IoT security and the blockchain, client data privacy, security and GDPR, and cybercrime: breaching data, humans and reality.
GDPR is looming, encryption will ease compliance
A major factor driving cybersecurity initiatives is the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to protect personally identifiable information (PII). The May deadline to be ready for this sweeping new regulatory mandate is fast approaching, and service providers and businesses are intensely focused on ensuring their ability to meet its requirements. With non-compliance fines expected to be 10 million Euros, the pressure is on telecommunications service providers to review, change and test new cybersecurity systems.
Preparing for GDPR requires understanding the cybersecurity risks and making wise investments in encrypted solutions. A no-nonsense approach includes encryption and key management from security experts like Cyphre who understand exactly what organizations need to do to comply with GDPR requirements. Governance prescribed by GDPR makes it essential to associate cryptographic managed objects with encrypted information.
MWC ’18 will explore cybersecurity, Cyphre will execute it
If you are attending the Mobile World Congress, please schedule a meeting with a member of the Cyphre team to learn how to establish highly-secure global connections with virtually unbreakable encryption.
