Making VoIP Compliant with Regulatory Rules Can Be Tricky

by VoipPlanet.com Staff

It's hard to know when regulations actually apply to VoIP calls.

"As attacks against VoIP persist businesses not only have to defend themselves, they have to do it under the gun of regulators who want proof that security was addressed in accordance with their ever-changing rules," writes Network World's Tim Greene.

"VoIP denial of service, toll fraud and eavesdropping attacks are serious problems, yet many businesses lack some of the most basic VoIP protections such as encryption, experts say. There is a sense of urgency to deal with these issues because at the same time, businesses are forced to comply with regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards that present a moving target as they are revised and updated," Greene writes.
