(Hacking) Battle Bots, Assemble!

Gone are the days where hacking was just for humans. A recent cyber contest, pit bots against bots, all designed by security researchers from across industry and academia.

Ultimately, fully independently operating bots are not quite here yet but they’re closer than ever.

Being hacked is a possibility for any business, including HDT, so, to combat any possible fraudulent activity specifically on our voice network, HDT works with multiple carriers and agencies to have alerts and thresholds in place for network and fraud protection. Some of the measures taken by HDT include blacklisting countries known for fraud and setting daily international call limits to certain countries. All of this we put in place to better protect our products and services and, ultimately, our customers.

Staying at least one step ahead is always the name of the game.

Until next time…
