Will Efforts to Block Illegal Robocalls Negatively Impact Legitimate Businesses?

With illegal robocalls representing nearly half of all unwanted calls in 2019, the new Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs (SHAKEN) is helping to rebuild consumer confidence and trust in the U.S. by mitigating the impact of the criminals. However, as international calls will also pass through the SHAKEN service, overseas service providers need to be fully aware of the process to ensure their calls are properly authenticated and verified, and not inadvertently blocked due to lack of trust in the authentication information or lack of authentication altogether.

¿Tendrán un impacto negativo sobre los negocios los esfuerzos por bloquear las llamadas automáticas ilegales?

Como las llamadas automáticas ilegales representan casi la mitad de las llamadas indeseadas en 2019, el nuevo manejo basado en firmas de información confirmada mediante toKENs (SHAKEN) está ayudando a recuperar la confianza del consumidor y confiar en que EE.UU. está mitigando el impacto de los delincuentes. Sin embargo, como las llamadas internacionales también pasaran por el servicio SHAKEN, los proveedores de servicios extranjeros deberán comprender muy bien el proceso para garantizar que sus llamadas sean correctamente autenticadas y verificadas, y no inadvertidamente bloqueadas por desconfiar en la información de autenticación o falta de autenticación.
