This brand new White Paper, by Praesidum Consultancy Group, the business consultancy division of WeDo Technologies, focuses on the risks M2M services can cause operators in terms of fraud and revenue assurance and how they can effectively deal with these problems.
This whitepaper provides an insight into the envisaged industry position for embedded mobile and the subsequent requirements for effective fraud and security management.
It incorporates discussion on the types of threats that communications service providers (CSPs) will be exposed to and what will ultimately be required to respond, as well as helping to define an evolving strategy built upon a robust foundation of people, processes and technology – ensuring a combined approach.
Consumers, for instance, will only remember how a particular service is provided by telecoms technology (if and when compromised) and not consider that the CSP might not be the actual service provider or device owner.
Well organised and financed criminal gangs will be assessing what the boundaries are for providing M2M and looking to identify the ‘softer’ or ‘easy targets’ to maximise their revenues. Telecoms fraud has climbed steadily over the years – the introduction of innovative solutions and services for M2M will serve to further fuel these opportunities for security breaches.
This white paper gives an industry overview and then addresses the following:
- What will be offered and who owns the risk?
- Types of Fraud & Security Attacks and CSP Requirements
- Considerations for Successful Risk Management Strategy
- What defences can be defined
