Geoff is developing a risk map and catalogue for revenue and cost leakages in the telecoms industry. The map will describe and categorise the risks whilst the catalogue will go into more detail, and will list mitigation techniques that telcos have adopted in practice. This initiative sees Geoff collaborating with some of the leading telcos and vendors in the industry. Find out more and review the current version of the catalogue from here.

Geoff is a regular participant at RAG conferences and meetings, and he will talk about his risk catalogue at RAG London 2018.
