Empowering telecommunications companies with full data visibility to implement protections that combat evolving security challenges.
The telecommunications industry keeps the world connected via the internet, phones, and airwaves. With mobile devices dominating as a primary source of communication, telecom corporations have access to vast amounts of personally identifiable information (PII), including location data, biometrics, and voice audio. This invaluable data has led to telecom companies skyrocketing as targets for cybercrime, and because this industry controls so many others — from government to finance to healthcare — the effects of a successful cyberattack can be felt across the board.
From CCPR to GDPR, telecom companies must comply with multiple data security regulations to protect an ever-expanding body of sensitive data, which has become further complicated as of late by the popularity of IoT technology, such as Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and home security cameras, as well as the permanence of remote work, which opens doors to threats from insider attacks and third-party applications. With so much data at risk, telephone, internet, and satellite providers must take proactive measures to minimize vulnerabilities.
A Spirion-first approach makes it easy to proactively protect client and business data with persistent data discovery, classification, and protection, along with easy data security application integration. Companies can determine strategic protections and actions for their data, and monitor progress without burdening staff or risking human error. This fortifies sensitive data security and ensures that it’s given compliance-appropriate protections, while still providing the flexibility that allows admins to perform critical business functions.
