ATIS Releases Two Cybersecurity Resources
Wednesday, July 19, 2017 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) published two resources on securing critical network infrastructure against growing and evolving cyber threats.

“Cybersecurity Architectural Risk Analysis Process” (ATIS-I-0000057) addresses proactive mitigation steps to address cybersecurity attacks, as well as procedures to determine security goals and identify and assess potential risks. Industry best practices underlie many of the steps included. The document includes an example of how the architectural risk analysis is used for a hypothetical health monitoring device and associated services delivered in an information communication technology (ICT) service-provider-managed context.

“Securing Internet of Things (IoT) Services Involving Network Operators” (ATIS-I-0000056) focuses on the security concerns associated with the rapid growth in IoT services. ATIS’ work is geared toward protecting IoT services and preventing IoT equipment from becoming a source of attacks against other service users. The white paper characterizes the different levels of partnerships possible between network operators and IoT service providers. The document provides practices to proactively address security implications in each level of partnership.

“These two new documents will help service providers adopt a more proactive approach to cybersecurity by offering a systematic process to identify and address vulnerabilities at the service design stage,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “IoT cybersecurity, in particular, requires collaboration between device and network providers. These resources advance this dialog.”
