LONDON, September 7, 2011 -

The birth and growth of mobile smart phones and devices has opened up a whole new realm of opportunity for criminals in the telecoms fraud market - as well as new challenges for revenue assurance professionals.  With PBX hacking alone said to be worth millions of euros, companies cannot risk not being up-to-date with the latest anti-fraud strategies.

Jack Wraith, CEO of the Telecommunications UK Fraud Forum (TUFF), believes that the way to combat telecoms fraud is through information sharing.  In an exclusive podcast with Telecoms IQ Jack said, “in order for legitimate communication service providers to combat the attacks against them and their systems, it is critical that information is shared between operators on a much wider basis than traditionally has been done.”

Jack will be chairing the first day of the conference at Telecoms Fraud and Risk Management ( Decemberlooking at how to how to develop the preventive measures required to tackle the fraud risks resulting from the explosion in new technologies, handsets and NFC / mobile payment services.
