tackling illegal robocalls and caller id spoofing
Your telephone is constantly by your side – an essential tool for interacting with the world. It is an extension of your identity and life. Despite the constant accessibility and desire to access and exchange information simply, seamlessly and securely, consumer confidence in the authenticity of callers continues to wane because of technology shifts and the scale at which bad actors misuse and abuse communication networks.
As a result, lawmakers, regulators, businesses and service providers are working to secure trust in calls while maintaining a balance between convenience, availability and privacy.
In May 2019, the Secure Telephone Identity Governance Authority (STI-GA), created to manage the rollout of STIR/SHAKEN, selected iconectiv as the U.S. STI Policy Administrator (STI-PA). In this role, iconectiv will utilize its 35+ year history as a trusted telecommunications partner to apply and enforce the rules as defined by the STI-GA to operationalize the SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) framework. This is a critical move to helping consumers once again trust their caller ID.
