We are taking part in the International Telecoms Week that is going to take place in Chicago, where Pedro Pablo Pérez (Product and Services VP) will give a speech: “THE PATH TO NETWORK SECURITY IN THE WHOLESALE WORLD” this afternoon, at 4:00 p.m (Chicago time)

Cyberattacks on networks have been a daily threat for years and carriers are investing heavily in solutions to avoid network downtime and to keep customers’ data safe. Yet, the threat persists. Hackers never seem short of new ways to breach security barriers.

This session will look at the latest security issues, how carriers have been combating the attacks and will discuss how, if at all, carriers can stay one step ahead of attackers. It will also look at the wholesale world and the holes in protection that can occur when data is running over a number of different networks to reach the end-user.

  • How quickly are the nature of attacks on networks changing and how easy or difficult is it to keep up with them?
  • What are the latest severe threats and which solutions have proved most effective?
  • Is Network Virtualisation solving security problems or creating greater threats than before? What consequences can be drawn from this?
  • Is it enough for every carrier to do their own best, or does the wholesale world require combined efforts and universal standards to really provide end-to-end security?

ITW is the world’s largest meeting for the global wholesale telecommunications community. In its 9th year, Pedro Pablo Pérez will give his speech. Don’t miss it out! This afternoon, at 4:00 p.m (Chicago time).
