The telecommunication networks have been facing threats in the form of data and theft of funds in the past through the malicious activities of system hackers. However the continuously evolving nature of the network no demands that network security has to be implemented for keeping the quality of the system, making it reliable as well as for continuity of the business operations on the network.
The internet while is the basis for telecommunication networks, it is also the main instigator when it comes to threats and security issues. This is because the internet is one of the main platforms where discussion are carried about security initiatives, standard policies, and protection measures along with discussion of strategies on how the networks can be compromised and hacked into (Jacobs, 2008). Therefore an effective telecommunication network security is an essential requirement for businesses as well as the users of the network.
