PBX HACKING TAKES A TOLL ON BUSINESS
While developments in IP telecommunications technology have brought about many benefits for businesses, they have also been accompanied by an elevated frequency of PBX hacking and phone fraud. Individual hackers and highly organized criminals have increasingly been able to gain access and compromise phone and voicemail systems to steal business data or make expensive long distance calls.
These threats and security issues can be highly consequential for any business operating a phone system. For businesses chartered with privacy requirements, the damage can be catastrophic.
PBX Hacking and Toll Fraud cost businesses more than $25 Billion in 2013.
