Securing critical networks – tackling cyber security challenges in the UK’s telecommunications industry

Hardening telecoms cyber security

The UK’s telecommunications industry faces significant cyber security challenges in its role as a critical component of modern digital communication.

Key challenges include infrastructure attacks, which can lead to widespread service disruption and national security concerns, and data breaches, given the vast amounts of sensitive customer data held by telecom companies.

With the advent of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), new security issues arise, as these technologies create more potential entry points for hackers and often lack robust security measures. Supply chain attacks, where a compromise in any vendor can impact the telecom company and its customers, pose a major structural threat.

Securing telecoms networks and systems

Telecom companies navigate a heavily regulated landscape related to data protection, privacy and security to maintain customer trust and avoid reputational damage.

The sector is a common target for increasingly complex Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, aimed at overwhelming network resources and causing service disruptions. Ascentor’s expert cyber security team has decades of experience in addressing these challenges, supporting the development of robust technological defences, comprehensive internal security policies, employee training and effective compliance support.
