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 Cloud Computing and Virtualisation in Telecommunications Fraud and Security.
