How we work with cyber security
Telenor is continuously implementing security capabilities to prevent and reduce the effect of a range of threats, including the ability to swiftly detect and respond to unwanted activities. This includes a number of actions related to preventive controls, including monitoring and detection, vulnerability assessments and incident management and response across all our business units.
As we detect and prevent thousands of cyber-attack attempts every year, we are constantly developing our security efforts in line with the external threat picture. We realise that advanced security solutions are needed to handle a wide range of cyber threats. Our foremost task is to protect our customers’ data in compliance with relevant authorities and legal frameworks.

How we respond to cyber-attacks
Telenor continuously analyses the risk and global threat picture and has established a global function for monitoring and incident response. The purpose is to meet the challenge of handling potential security breaches and to protect customer data.
The global function for monitoring and incident response builds on the capabilities of the Telenor Norway Security Operations Centre (TSOC) and the Telenor Computer Emergency Response Team (TCERT). Through our global and local efforts, we continuously monitor our systems, analyse potential findings and implement appropriate mitigation and counter-measures.

Working through international fora
Telenor is an active and contributing member in international security fora working to protect network and customer data against attacks, fraud and crime. In this context, the two most relevant fora are the Information Security Forum (ISF) and the GSM Association Fraud and Security Group (FASG).
In ISF, Telenor is a member of the Council, where we give valuable strategy input. Here we also maintain a dialogue with vendors and partners to share intelligence and build response.
In FASG, Telenor actively participates in setting the direction within the fraud and security domain for the entire industry.
