Cellular Tower Security
Cell sites and cellular base stations are subject to attack physically and virtually. This makes cellular tower security a priority in keeping the lines of communication open.
Cellular Tower Security Risks
Cell tower attackers can strike in any number of ways. Some seek to vandalize the towers, causing damage to the tower itself or the equipment it contains, such as when more than 30 towers were set on fire in Britain in 2020 within one month.
Other attacks on cellular towers have been focused on the equipment or devices. This happened in Monroe County, Michigan, in early 2021 when thieves took roughly $2,000 in copper wire from one cell phone tower in the county of Berlin Township. Three additional buildings were tampered with or had stolen wire the week before.
Cellular towers are also at risk of getting hacked or hijacked, providing the hacker the ability to obtain private information from the devices in that area. Sometimes, they access this data by setting up fake cell towers designed to act like the actual ones. These counterfeit towers are referred to as false base stations (FBSs), rogue base stations (RBSs), or International Mobile Subscriber Identifier (IMSI) Catchers.
Even cellular tower workers can be attacked. 5G conspiracies are thought to be behind numerous incidents of abuse – including being physically assaulted and spit at – causing the workers of one telecom company to flee angry groups.
