iconectiv Joins RAG in its Global Fight Against Fraud

23 May 2019 As global fraud continues to damage the reputation and bottom line of businesses around the world, the Risk and Assurance Group (RAG) continues to bring together industry leaders to mitigate the risks and address the problem. Deepening the relationship already established with RAG through participation in previous events, iconectiv, an authoritative partner of the telecommunications industry, joins 12 other global sponsors whose collaborative efforts will be seen at the RAG conferences this year.

As an industry thought leader, iconectiv also provides its insights on outsmarting the fraudsters by participating in RAG’s Steering Committee. John Haraburda, Principal Solutions Engineer Director at iconectiv, and committee member, analyses fraud strategies of the past and present to provide guidance on topical issues and descriptions of the latest methods to mitigate emerging risks in telecom fraud.

Eric Priezkalns, Chief Executive of RAG, commented on the value added by iconectiv.

iconectiv maintains such extensive and deep intelligence in areas like number management that even the largest international telecoms groups cannot replicate their insights.  The world leader in numbering and network management solutions offers a compelling proposition to telcos conscious of the benefits that flow from superior intelligence.

During the last year we have been fortunate to have iconectiv experts presenting at RAG conferences, and this has added a new dimension to our conference agendas. Conferences run by other organizations can get bogged down in the repetition of well-worn themes, but iconectiv helps RAG avoid that problem by providing authoritative, actionable insights on the challenges and solutions working globally. Our audiences have learned a lot from listening to iconectiv experts. This is why I am so glad that iconectiv has committed to supporting all of RAG’s activities worldwide. We want iconectiv engaged with RAG because our audiences gain so much from their contribution.

“iconectiv understands firsthand the intricacies and complexities involved in creating, operating and securing networks, and has partnered with RAG to continue fighting the global fraud problem,” said Richard Jacowleff, Chief Executive Officer, iconectiv. “Utilizing our industry expertise and knowledge on the ever-changing fraud techniques and strategies, iconectiv helps fraud managers proactively protect their businesses from being the unwitting victim of new attacks and criminal activity.”
