Fraud and Security at the GSMA
The GSMA continually enhances the security support offered to its membership as the threats targeting the mobile ecosystem emerge. Our vision is to provide value for our membership in three main areas:
- Industry collaboration by convening membership to define industry specifications, threat management guidelines, promoting baseline controls and conducting external collaboration to ensure industry alignment.
- Providing expertise through subject matter experts by supporting solution and service offering development to internal and external stakeholders, as well as promoting industry Fraud and Security awareness.
- Defining the future by looking forward by assessing, analysing and reporting on the industry threat landscape. This is also done through engagement with standards bodies and reviewing new technologies to ensure adequate protection by design.
