On behalf of a group of wireless carriers, LLGS urged the FCC to take strong and targeted actions to protect the nation’s telecommunications networks from attack by both domestic and foreign actors. The carriers recommended a number of best practices that would harden networks and improve security. Included with the comments is a white paper by Domain5, a cybersecurity consulting firm, providing specific recommendations. The carriers urged that the Commission’s proposal to restrict universal service support to carriers using equipment from certain foreign companies not be adopted, as it would prove to be ineffective in view of the amount of foreign equipment already in our nation’s telecommunications and Internet infrastructure. A copy of the comments can be found here.
