  Fully deploy industry anti-fraud

  Anti-fraud must start from the source.

Sui Jing introduced that in order to promote industry source governance, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has deepened the real-name system for phone calls and the security management of IoT cards, strictly controlled the security risks of key fraud-related businesses, established a sound long-term mechanism, and tightened and compacted basic telecommunications companies, mobile communication resale companies, and the Internet. The chain of anti-fraud responsibility of platform companies.

  According to statistics, in the first half of the year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology conducted three rounds of network inspections on 93 provincial-level basic telecommunications companies and nearly 150 million Internet of Things cards across the country, and cleared 16.41 million illegal industry cards from 39 mobile communication resale companies. At the root cause, squeeze the space for illegal and criminal activities.

  "Cat Pool" is a hardware device for network communication, which can convert traditional telephone signals into network signals. A "Cat Pool" device can support multiple mobile phone calls at the same time, as well as group text messaging, remote control, and card machine separation. And other functions.

This was originally a device to facilitate communication between units and companies, but some people with ulterior motives use it to engage in illegal and criminal activities.

  Since May, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has acted hard and has directly attacked the pain points of anti-fraud through "card breaking" and "cat hitting".

In conjunction with the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Public Security issued a notice on the legally clearing up and rectifying fraudulent phone cards, Internet of Things cards, and associated Internet accounts, and instructed telecommunications companies to establish a “second real person authentication” system for high-risk phone cards.

On the other side, a "special action for hitting cats" was launched.

Aiming at the problem of difficulty in locating fraud by using "cat pool", GoIP (a virtual dialing device) equipment and other remote control devices, quickly set up 15 industry "cat hunting teams" and expert databases, and researched and deployed the "cat hitting" technology platform and monitoring Model to form a working mechanism for rapid verification and disposal of clues.

As of the end of June, three basic telecommunications companies and public security agencies have cracked down on 94 "cat pool" dens and arrested 282 criminal suspects.

  Weaving secret anti-fraud protection net

  Sui Jing said frankly that in the face of the current fierce confrontation of telecommunications network fraud technology, we must adhere to the "network management network and technology management network", and accelerate the construction of a national integrated technical defense system.

  To this end, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has organized the construction of a large anti-fraud platform for the information and communication industry, opened up the industry command platform, basic telecommunications companies, key Internet companies and other related system platforms, broke the "data barriers", and realized the number, domain name, Internet account number, and information involved. The ability to quickly deal with fraudulent calls and text messages, such as "one-click delivery, effective on the entire network".

During the trial operation of the platform, a total of 18,000 code numbers involved in the case, more than 91,000 websites/domain names/IP addresses, and 12,000 Internet accounts were handled.

  According to Xie Pan, deputy general manager of China Unicom's Digital Department (Information Security Department), China Unicom's big data platform performs full analysis on more than 1 billion pieces of data every day, identifies fraud-related clues, and provides them to the public security department, and has established a quick check and quick check. Mechanism to quickly shut down fraud-related numbers and push fraud-related clues to the handling personnel as soon as possible.

  "Information cybercrime has seriously infringed on the rights and interests of users. We must properly control the three barriers, namely, gateway access, activation barriers, and usage barriers, and continuously improve technical means to increase prevention." Deputy General Manager of China Telecom Network and Information Security Management Department Zhang Kan told reporters that China Telecom strictly controls the information verification when users are activated on the network, and creates a one-click shutdown capability. The average processing time has been shortened to the minute level, and a series of network anti-fraud and anti-fraud security services such as "calling business cards" are provided.

  According to Zhao Gang, deputy general manager of China Mobile's Confidential Center, China Mobile, based on its big data platform, identifies fraudulent numbers through user access and communication behaviors, and shuts down after verification.

At the same time, it cooperated with the Ministry of Public Security to carry out the "Broken Card 2.0" work to conduct a full second real-person authentication and cleaning of the 90-day "three nos" (no voice, no text messages, and no traffic bills) sleep card.

  In the anti-fraud prevention work, it is also very important to prevent fraud in advance, and publicity and education are also very important.

According to the relevant person in charge of Douyin, in the past two years, Douyin has successively cooperated with the Inter-Ministry Joint Conference Office of the State Council to Combat New Types of Illegal Crimes on Telecommunications Networks and the National Anti-Fraud Center to carry out anti-fraud theme Douyin Security Week activities.

At present, the anti-fraud and anti-fraud propaganda and education videos have been played more than 2.3 billion times under the topic of Douyin's "Anti-fraud Collector".
