AT&T has launched Cyber Aware, a website to help you learn about email and text scams, spam, identity theft, and how to recognize and prevent cybersecurity threats.
AT&T helps protect data from end to end, at rest and in motion, across each layer that comprises a network connection. Our AT&T Threat Intellect suite of security services provides unparallelled visibility into data patterns and threat activity across our network. And, our move to a software-defined network (SDN) also allows us to help maximize responsiveness, efficiency, and provide additional layers of security.
Every day the cybersecurity landscape changes. Each new device connected to the network presents a new target for attackers that needs to be secured, and each new social media post creates new cyber risks. At AT&T, we analyze the traffic on our network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year at our 8 global security operations centers to help understand and identify the latest emerging threats.
The communications sector has a long history of working cooperatively and productively with the federal government to prevent and respond to cybersecurity breaches. Despite the success of this public-private partnership model, some advocate for imposing rigid cybersecurity regulations on the industry. This would be a mistake.
Policymakers should clarify and streamline the role of government in cybersecurity, strengthen existing public-private partnerships, address international cybersecurity challenges, and drive adoption of new technologies to enhance cyber resiliency.
