Communication Sector Threats

The communication sector is a term typically used to describe the telecommunications industry. It is a critical sector of the economy, providing vital infrastructure and services (transmitting voice, data, and video traffic) essential to daily life. The telecom industry, in particular, is a key driver of economic growth and innovation and plays a vital role in keeping our economy moving forward.

The security of our communications networks is more critical than ever. Ensuring that our data is safe and secure is essential to maintaining the trust of consumers and businesses. Many cybersecurity threats put at risk the security of our communications sector. These include:

  • DNS attacks
  • DDoS attacks
  • Phishing, data breaches, and malware attacks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Threats

Beyond digital vulnerabilities, physical security and protection of communication sector infrastructure are equally important as they are open to attack, vandalism, and theft. Protection of the communication infrastructure includes:

  • Site perimeter security
  • Telecommunications hut security
  • Tower security
  • Rooftop security
  • Equipment monitoring
