Recommendations

Telecom companies, data centers and cloud infrastructure are frequent targets for cyberattacks. You will be the first line of defense for your clients in the case of a malware outbreak. Thus, you are encouraged to deploy a comprehensive multi-layered cybersecurity solution. Another big problem for this sector is the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff, which cannot be solved without regular cyber awareness training.

In order to ensure resilience of your online services against DDoS attacks, make sure that you implement an integrated DDoS mitigation strategy. Incidents with data sharing and the physical loss of devices or media is another big issue for your region, demanding special attention during cybersecurity training.
