Every industry is vulnerable to cybercrime, but perhaps none more so than telecommunications. Telcos are responsible for securing a huge number of mobile subscribers’ accounts as well as their personal data, and yet 76% of their employees are reusing passwords across multiple accounts.
Once a cybercriminal knows the password for one account, they will test it on other accounts, and if the account owner has reused the password, the criminal has easy access. That makes it extremely important for telco security teams to identify vulnerable accounts early so they can lock them down, force password changes, and remediate malware infections before they can be compromised.
Examining the unique security challenges of this vital sector, this SpyCloud report provides guidance for shoring up defenses and preventing bad employee habits from leading to further damage:
