FCC & It’s Demand For Customer Privacy Protection

Concerning privacy, FCC has voted today for a Declaratory Ruling that all carriers must safeguard the private data in their customers’ mobile devices. This is known as customer proprietary network information, which consists of phone numbers, call duration, call locations and call logs. Providers are made to protect these data, but till today, only network does that followed by phones. Carriers are still allowed to collect information for network support purposes, but all precautions must be met. It appears that third-party apps and services aren’t covered under the ruling, and there are no strict regulations on how the CPNI may be gathered or protected. And, FCC made it clear that if any data is exposed, the carriers will be facing serious consequence.
