BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--()--iconectiv, the authoritative partner of the communications industry for more than 35 years, will speak at Twilio's Signal: Customer and Developer Conference 2019 to discuss the industry’s approach to stop illegal robocalls. With the exponential growth of illegal spam and scam calls reaching 85 billion globally in 2018, a 325% jump from 2017, consumer answer rates continue to rapidly deteriorate, creating lost revenue, diminished brand equity and customer satisfaction challenges for businesses that are legitimately communicating with their customers.

Among the conference’s expert speakers will be Mary Barnes, senior professional, industry relations, iconectiv. Barnes will join the Conversation With Those Shaping Anti-Spam and Anti-Spoofing Approaches panel, which will cover the proliferation of spam and false identity in voice communications. She will also provide details on the SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) framework, which calls for encrypted digital signatures to stop callers from being able to illegally spoof a caller ID.
