The roll-out of the STIR/SHAKEN framework and standards provided a great foundation for mitigating and preventing fraud on our telephone networks. It has been just that though, a FOUNDATION. With the implementation of STIR/SHAKEN protocols near complete, now is the perfect time to improve upon the framework and add the functionality needed to eliminate fraudulent calls altogether. As easy as this may sound in theory, the reality is that there are several barriers standing in our path to success. Chief among these are a lack of consistency in achieving trust and providing timely, useful feedback that can help better enforce commonly agreed upon industry guidelines. Join Sri Ramachandran, SVP and Chief Technology Officer, at Somos, Rebekah Johnson, Founder and CEO at Numeracle, Greg Rogers, Head of Global Policy and Regulatory Affairs at Bandwidth Inc. and Chris Wendt, VP of Systems Engineering at Somos,as they discuss what can – and needs to – be done to restore trust in telecom. During this session, they’ll provide perspective on why it’s so critical that this effort be collaborative. From enterprises to service providers to consumers, there are multiple players and moving parts involved in the call journey and it’s up to us to work together to create positive experiences founded in trust, confidence and security.
