What are the benefits of the GSMA Network Equipment Security Assurance Scheme for mobile network operators?

There are many reasons why MNOs should require their network equipment supply partners to participate in the scheme. Importantly, operators have a duty of care to their subscribers and authorities to safeguard their telecommunications assets. After all, these constitute critical national infrastructure in many countries. What’s more, data privacy regulation is an imperative obligation and resilience to breaches is of paramount importance.

GSMA NESAS helps assure the security and resilience of network equipment security. GSMA recommends that operators request their network equipment suppliers participate in NESAS — and provide evidence of this. Especially during their procurement processes. Significantly, all equipment vendors who have successfully undergone the Process Audit and Product Evaluation will have certificates to prove it.
