The most significant factors are: 

  • Digital transformation is a complicated, costly process requiring telcos to change their corporate culture completely. 
  • Competition between mobile network operators requires more flexibility, personalization, and more meaningful interactions with providers, which generate a lot of difficulties and sensitive data. 
  • IoT device management is poor
  • Passwords are weak
  • The adaptation of 5 GB  

Top threats and attacks

The Telecom and IoT industry is undergoing rapid transformation, and switching from reactive to proactive security measures is necessary. 

The following are the top cybersecurity challenges that Telecom and IoT infrastructure should consider. 

  • Network congestion  
  • DDoS attacks 
  • RFID interference  
  • Routing attacks 
  • Sybil attacks
