Venue: Virtual Event

Safeguarding Secure Networks of the Future


The GSMA’s Fraud and Security Group (FASG) drives the industry’s management of fraud and security matters related to mobile technology, networks, and services, with the objective to maintain or increase the protection of mobile operator technology and infrastructure and customer identity, security and privacy such that the industry’s reputation stays strong and mobile operators remain trusted partners in the ecosystem. FASG provides an open, receptive, and trusted environment within which fraud and security intelligence and incident details can be shared in a timely and responsible way.

The theme of this GSMA Fraud and Security Group (FASG) virtual event is “Sweating the assets” in Fraud and Security Management, and will look at the following:

  • Getting maximum value and efficiency out of available fraud/security tools and resources;
  • How fraud and security teams can add value to the business as it adapts to a Covid-19 environment; and
  • Ensuring that new business directions and opportunities (e.g. financial services) are secure for operators, partners, and customers.

This is a GSMA Member exclusive event.
