Data Protection in Telecoms: Safeguarding your Business Information in the Digital Age

At InReach, we work with organisations all over the UK to enhance their communications using up-to-date technology and devices.

In today’s digital age, data protection in telecoms is something that needs to be taken into consideration for both individuals as well as businesses.

As with many aspects of business, the telecommunications sector is experiencing a period of remarkable transformation. The increasing need for faster connection speeds and reduced latency has compelled mobile, cloud and fixed-line service providers to undergo substantial network reconfiguration. This is in order to accommodate emerging technologies like 5G and IoT, as well as large-scale public initiatives like smart cities and communication networks for autonomous vehicles.

Understanding Data Protection in Telecoms

When it comes to data protection in telecoms, there are three aspects to be aware of:

  • Protecting systems from an attack
  • Detecting an attack should it happen
  • Protecting the data itself

For many service providers, the first two points – protection and detection are the most obvious and are often focused on as a priority. The third point, however, protecting the data, is often overlooked – which is a problem in today’s society, with GDPR becoming more important than ever.

Regulations like GDPR, along with the responsibility to safeguard subscriber identity, are growing progressively stringent regarding data protection standards, particularly within the telecom industry. Consequently, the industry organisations responsible for establishing communication protocols and standards are establishing more precise guidelines for compliance. In line with these mandates, the integration of hardware security modules (HSMs) is now an obligatory component of a secure cryptographic framework for data protection in telecommunications.

Why Data Protection in Telecoms is So Important 

Data protection in all aspects of business is important, and telecoms is no different. Within telecoms for any organisation, there is a vast amount of personal and sensitive information for employees and clients/customers. Ensuring this information is protected is essential for the well-being of everyone involved as well as the success of your business.
