URORA, IL, June 8, 2016 Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions, today announces that it has released a detailed analysis on cybercrime in the remote cellular network and how to best address this critical issue. The paper, entitled  How Cybercriminals and Spies Threaten to Attack Your Remote Cellular Network, explores how cybercriminals, both large and small, are attacking our remote cellular networks and what can be done to lessen the risk.

“When we hear the term ‘cybercriminals,’ we think of identity theft and electronic manipulation,” comments Michael Green, Product Line Manager, Intelligent Site Management & Worldwide Services at Westell. “Yet a cybercriminal’s infrastructure is built on physical assets, buildings, network towers, power lines, hardware servers, and even HVAC systems which are all vulnerable. This paper comprehensively explores these vulnerabilities as they relate to in-building locations, outside plants and even human assets, and provides solutions to address these critical challenges.”

Among the insights provided in the paper is a detailed framework to managing cyber-security risk. The Framework is a risk-based approach to managing cybersecurity risk, and is composed of three parts: the Framework Core, the Framework Profiles, and the Framework Implementation Tiers. Each Framework component reinforces the connection between business drivers and cybersecurity activities. The paper details the steps critical to evaluating risk and provides a roadmap for addressing these risks through plan development.
