AT&T Joins Global Cyber Security Alliance
March 7, 2019
The Global Telco Security Alliance noted the addition of global telecommunications leader AT&T as an equal member in the group which was launched in April 2018 by Etisalat, Singtel, SoftBank and Telefónica. The Global Telco Security Alliance brings together leading telecommunications operators from around the world that offer enterprises comprehensive cybersecurity insights to help them address the growing threat of cyber-attacks and the evolving threat landscape.
“We are thrilled to be the first
telco in North America to join the alliance, and to do so as a founding
member,” said Barmak Meftah, President AT&T Cybersecurity.
“Cybercriminals have well established and organized communities that
cooperate to produce cyber threats and it’s time large network operators
work together to help deliver disruptive innovations and enable our
global customers to detect and respond to threats faster and protect
their digital footprint.”
