The remarkable growth in the use of Internet-connected devices and the increased reliance on cloud-based services have exponentially raised the stakes for cybersecurity in the telecommunication industry.
This digital transformation necessitates stringent and robust security measures within their networks and systems. Consequently, ensuring the protection of these complex infrastructures against relentless and evolving cyber threats has become a non-negotiable imperative. It’s clear that a proactive approach to cybersecurity is not just an option but a critical necessity for the continuity and resilience of the telecommunications industry.
Elementrica: A Proactive Approach to Cybersecurity
Elementrica offers proactive cybersecurity services, including Offensive Security and Penetration Testing. These services empower telecommunications companies by identifying potential risks and vulnerabilities within their systems and networks, assuring their services’ availability and security.
In an instance involving a large telecommunications provider, Elementrica conducted an External Network Penetration Test on their network infrastructure. The provider served a vast customer base, and their network was integral to delivering various services, including voice, data, and video.
Elementrica’s team of certified ethical hackers utilised a blend of manual and automated testing methods to detect vulnerabilities and potential entry points into the provider’s network. The test uncovered several weaknesses, including outmoded software, frail passwords, and insecure remote access protocols. Elementrica subsequently supplied the telecommunications provider with a comprehensive report with remediation suggestions and guidance to bolster their network security.
In another case, a telecommunications provider engaged Elementrica to conduct an Internal Network Penetration Test. The provider operated a multifaceted network infrastructure spread across multiple locations. Remote access granted to their employees made it a prospective target for cyber malefactors. The test exposed many vulnerabilities and weaknesses within the provider’s network, including feeble passwords and obsolete software.
Elementrica’s certified ethical hackers collaborated with the provider’s IT team to create and apply a remediation plan to rectify the detected vulnerabilities, hence fortifying the network’s security. The testing granted the telecommunications provider an exhaustive insight into their network security posture, enabling proactive measures to secure their infrastructure and protect customer data.
