Socializing Telephony Fraud Prevention

–Fraud Does Not Discriminate, Any Size Company Can Be Hit–

Ramat HaSharon, Israel – January 17, 2012 Humbug Telecom Labs, provider of carrier-class fraud prevention, detection and telecom analytics for any size business, today announced that they will be participating at TMC’s ITEXPO East 2012, being held February 1-3, in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

ITEXPO is well known as the “communications and technology marketplace” due to its history of fostering true business opportunity.  The 25th iteration of the World’s largest and longest-running B-to-B communications and technology conference is expected to draw more than 7,000 buyers and sellers of IP Communications products and services. Each attendee of the expo will receive a Humbug Branded conference bag as well as a copy of Humbug’s White Paper The Evolution of Telecom Fraud Prevention. Each copy of the White Paper contains a Promotion Code for a 1 month free trial of the Humbug Pro Fraud Protection service.

Humbug will be presenting in two of the collocated events:

  • On Wed. Feb 1st at 2:30-3:15 Eric Klein, Humbug’s VP of Sales will be part of a Panel entitled: What Cloud Means for Fraud Prevention as part of the Cloud Communications Expo.
  • On Thurs. Feb 2nd at 1 pm Nir Simionovich will be presenting Socializing Telephony Fraud as part of Asterisk World.

“By presenting real instances of fraud and showcasing the impact it has on these businesses, we expect to create more awareness of a problem that will affect unprotected businesses,” said Simionovich.  “It’s not a matter of IF – it’s a matter of WHEN.”

Telecom fraud affects businesses of all sizes, from mom and pop shops, to large enterprises, and even seemingly immune government bodies like the Department of Homeland Security.  No one is safe and very few businesses, service providers and carriers have made the necessary telecom security provisions.  Hacker networks have found the largely unprotected telecom infrastructure to be the new frontier for lucrative criminal behavior.

“ITEXPO is the industry’s best venue for sourcing new products and solutions, and for learning more about the latest issues and trends that are shaping the communications landscape,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and Conference Chairman.  “Many of the attendees who visit ITEXPO seek the types of solutions that Humbug Telecom Labs provides, and we’re looking forward to working together in Miami.”

Collocated events at ITEXPO include: 4G Wireless Evolution Conference; Asterisk World; Business Video Expo; (CVx) Channel Vision Expo; Cloud Communications Summit; the HTML5 Summit; Mobile LatAm; M2M Evolution; the Mobile Enterprise Security Summit; MSP Alliance/MSP World; the Super WiFi Summit; and the Synopsis Under IP Patents Telecom Sourcing Conference.  Visit www.itexpo.com for more information.
