But with this comes new threats and vulnerabilities resulting in revenue leakage and fraud incurring great losses for the telecom companies.
While leakages may arise from weak internal processes, telecom fraud primarily rise from intentional misuse or abuse of telecommunication services and products (fraudsters) with the objective to illegally acquire money from either the telecom service providers or the customers.
Fraudsters are also exploiting weaknesses such as with the rise in targeted social engineering schemes involving use of stolen credentials obtained through data breaches, the increasing use of online portals, and with the voice-over-IP technologies leveraging the recent uptake in voice and data traffic
It continues to evolve in its methods to steal money, incorporating sophisticated technologies including the use of artificial intelligence, and can circumvent current countermeasures adopted by telecom companies.
