iconectiv Steps up Efforts to Fight $30 Billion Global Telecoms Fraud

Sponsored by Businesswire

A senior expert from iconectiv – one of the world’s leading telephone
numbering and fraud experts – is to join an industry steering group
looking to guide the fight against the growing threat of international
telecoms fraud.

Haraburda, Principal Solutions Engineer at iconectiv and a recognized
industry expert, is joining the International Steering Group of RAG

– the global telecoms body that leads the fight against fraud to
minimize risk and guarantee revenue assurance.

With telecoms fraud on the rise globally – the latest figures put the
potential annual cost to the global industry at some $30 billion – the
need to share knowledge and coordinate best practice across the operator
community has never been greater.

To help coordinate the industry response, the Risk and Assurance Group
(RAG) organizes a series of events and conferences that give the
operator community the opportunity to gather and hear first-hand the
latest trends and experiences from the global frontline.

As part of his role within the steering group, John Haraburda will
provide input to each of the conference and meeting agendas, and play a
key role in some of the discussions at the events.

“The work carried out by RAG and within its Steering Group is crucial to
the way the global industry is able to respond to the threat of
international telecoms fraud,” said Haraburda. “Globally the industry
has to coordinate activity and fight this problem together. That’s the
only way to ensure that any weak links in the chain can quickly be
spotted and blocked.”

Haraburda will be speaking at the RAG
Conference in Germany
and the RAG
Conference in Toronto
to discuss how to use data intelligence to
drive anti-fraud measures.
