Why Vetting is a Critical Foundational Component to Restoring Trust in the Phone System
Tuesday, December 8, 1:30pm-2:30pm EST
STIR/SHAKEN, call analytics, and rich call content are important to assure consumers that they can trust who is calling.
A foundational requirement is to ensure that you can actually verify the identity of the caller. We live an environment where people are skeptical of any information they receive due to fake news, misinformation and yes, phone calls.
In order for information to be viewed as trusted, we must first confirm the source is authentic and reliable.
