What most people don’t realise, is that in order to succeed, being a highly technical person isn’t enough. I started my Asterisk life as a Tech-Geek, almost 16 years ago, with Asterisk version 0.god_know_what. Since then I’ve traded places several times. Tech-Geek to CTO, CTO to Freelance Developer, Developer to Architect and finally Architect to CEO. I have suffered personal loss, managed to achieve things others didn’t – and learned a few things along the way. Link: Eric Klein, COO of Cloudonix, will be speaking in conjunction with Or Polaczek, Lead Mobile Engineer of Forter, on Wednesday, October 10th, 1:00-1:45 pm. Eric and Or’s talk is “Practical Impact of Telecom Fraud”.

This can be from the remote SIP device or mobile app that connects to the hosted server, all the way through to the actual server or servers. In addition to protecting SIP endpoints, it’s also important to make sure the human-factor is aware to all the recent types and methods used by attackers to commit credit-card fraud. This session will present some of the more common ways to use call centers as a proxy for placing fraudulent orders and stealing goods and how to address this kind of attacks.As always, there will be a review of recent telecom attacks and how to protect against them.
