The Surging Threats to Contact Center Security – Reducing
Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Risks and Negative Value Calls for Increased Profitability
Time: 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET
Duration: 60 minutes
Sponsored by SecureLogix, presented by Enterprise Connect
If your organization has invested in contact center resources, it is a near certainty that these resources are either under attack over voice lines today, or will be in the near future.
Security threats to enterprise Voice/UC resources are increasing, as illustrated by SecureLogix in its “State of Security Report on Voice/UC” released at Enterprise Connect in 2011 and 2012. And while global threats are expanding across the board, there has been a marked surge in attacks against contact center environments over the past 1-2 years from many domestic and foreign sources due to the potential financial payoff. Not only are these attacks on contact centers becoming more frequent, they are growing in sophistication and severity. There is now an emerging class of contact-center-focused attacks and fraud schemes, customized to disrupt the flow of legitimate business transactions over contact center voice lines, while financially defrauding the enterprise and its customers.
A new industry webinar from SecureLogix will use real-world data to take you inside many of these contact center threats and attack schemes so that you can better understand the criminal objectives and mechanisms employed by the attackers to compromise your security. SecureLogix will also unveil a new approach for identifying and filtering “negative value calls” out of precious contact center environments for increased productivity at reduced costs.
You’ll come away from the webinar with:
- An understanding of which real world attacks pose the more severe and costly threat to your contact center resources and business;
- Real-world examples and details of some of the surging threats to contact centers, including TDoS, Social Engineering, Identity Theft and Account Takeover Fraud, Hacktivism, Harassing Callers, Dial-Through Fraud, and Call Pumping Schemes;
- An understanding of the impact of “negative value calls” on contact center revenue and customer satisfaction scores (CSAT);
- A model to increase contact center effectiveness and ROI through more granular call filtering and increased security.
