Telecommunications companies lost more than $29 billion to consumer fraud in 2017 globally (1.27% of their revenues). The largest and most advanced communications service providers (CSPs) have sophisticated fraud detection systems and processes in place, but those organizations are now questioning their fraud readiness. Are they doing enough? Fraudsters may be individuals or increasingly sophisticated criminal networks. They constantly develop new methods and target new lines of business
Read this interview where Anat Hoida, Head of the FICO’s Telecom Practice in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, discusses the impacts of the evolving spectrum of fraud risks on the growth and competitiveness of CSPs globally.
Email is the primary communication system and file transport mechanism used in organizations of all sizes. Email systems generate enormous amounts of content that must be preserved for a variety of reasons, including:

Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security
investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing

a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a
unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps
automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure
component detects a threat.

The digital service revolution is well underway. For communications service providers (CSPs), it means going beyond traditional voice and data and upgrading their entire digital communications infrastructure. Research shows enterprise-class organizations are allocating heavy dollars towards communications solutions and prefer a single provider for digital services. This is a massive opportunity for CSPs to expand their services, generate more revenue, grow profit and increase market share. However, the majority of enterprises reported not receiving a consistently excellent experience with their most recent service contract. As a result, many switch to new providers. CSPs are losing credibility and the loyalty of their customers because of legacy and traditional systems that constrain their ability to act quickly. Enterprises are looking for CSPs who understand their complex business and can offer a full portfolio of digital services with quality and creativity to meet their needs.
