Cybersecurity Tech Talk
Welcome to the series of Digital Trust Tech Talk, where security and industry experts discuss the latest market trends over a cup of coffee.
Each episode is centered around a topic related to security software and services, and the various ways service providers can build trust using the latest technologies and tap into new business opportunities.
Communications service providers (CSPs) have always had to think about network security, but 5G is a game-changer. Heavy Reading’s Jim Hodges and Rodrigo Brito of Nokia weigh in on the challenges of multiple attack vectors, the expanding attack surface and increasing threat automation — and why artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) are key to mounting an effective response. With its ability to inject AI/ML-driven security into software anywhere in the network or cloud, an extended detection and response (XDR) platform fits the bill for a next-gen security solution.
With chief information security officers under increasing pressure to protect CSP networks and ensure compliance with ever-stricter regulations, the appeal of a managed service that can detect and respond to threats can bring much-needed peace of mind. IDC’s Joel Stradling and Vishal Sahay from Nokia talk about the need for increasingly powerful incident management in an environment where threats are inevitable — and how managed detection and response (MDR) applies specifically to telecoms.
Embedded SIM (eSIM) and integrated SIM (iSIM) are going to radically transform device security, configuration and management — opening up whole new worlds of possibility for the internet of things (IoT), digital citizenship and seamless user services. The question is, “What does it mean for CSPs?” Sylwia Kechiche of GSMA Intelligence and Thomas Hsu from Nokia give their views on the answers, highlighting some key sectors that are out in front and could represent big areas of opportunity.
With ABI Research projecting 23.6 billion IoT connections by 2026 — across industry and government, in smart homes, connected vehicles and more — how can all those endpoints be secured? And who’s in a position to secure them? That’s the focus of this deep-dive discussion between ABI’s Michela Menting and Nokia’s David Nelles, which touches on how CSPs can deliver much-needed endpoint security through the network as a value-add.
Every year, Nokia’s Threat Intelligence Center publishes its Threat Intelligence Report — a survey of annual trends in cyber risks. Paul Edwards and Kevin McName of Nokia give the highlights of the 2021 report, including new data on mobile device malware infections, the surge in supply chain attacks and how work from home shifted the threat situation for fixed residential networks.
