The GSMA APAC Security Interest Group (SIG) is to meet the needs of the network operators and the mobile industry ecosystem to share resources, experience and knowledge.

GSMA is uniquely placed to convene the industry’s security ecosystem.

  • We aim to inform, educate and alert regional MNOs about the latest developments in the network security and cyber security domains with real-time and zero-day vulnerability alerts, webinars, newsletters and meetings/events.
  • Within the APAC SIG we will bring together regional MNO security professionals, GSMA Security Team subject matter experts, independent security experts, training and consulting firms, equipment vendors and service providers to offer expert guidance on various aspects of network and cybersecurity.
  • We encourage MNO security team members to contribute their personal experience and knowhow to the community.

In this first webinar, you will learn about security intelligence resources and the future plans for the APAC security Interest Group. Topics include:
