RAG TV: Why Telcos Share Fraud Intelligence by Linking Their Fraud Management Systems

Is it outrageous to suggest that different telcos might automatically exchange data about fraud by programming their existing fraud management systems to both upload and download valuable intelligence from each other? A few years ago the suggestion might have seemed preposterous, but now it is a reality, with telcos like Shaw Communications and vendors like Subex actively choosing to make it happen. Taher Talib of Shaw (pictured) and Nitin Gangadharan of Subex were two of the guests who appeared on yesterday’s episode of RAG Television. They were joined by Tony Sani, co-founder of Orillion Solutions, developers of the RAG Wangiri Blockchain. The three guests presented simple, consistent and compelling arguments for why all telcos and vendors should help each other to protect customers by sharing information about wangiri fraud.

We can change the world if we work together, so I encourage you to watch this show if you have not seen it already. And if you already saw it live, then please encourage others to watch it!
