How to Stay Compliant with STIR/ SHAKEN Standards
Is your communication system compliant with STIR/SHAKEN standards? Every year, around 60% of claims handled by the FCC relate to illegal robocalls and spoofing. The massive amount of fraudulent robocalls can harm service provider’s reputation and create a lack of trust in communications.
What is STIR/SHAKEN?
STIR (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Secure Handling of Asserted Information Using Tokens) are new technology standards created by FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to ensure that calling numbers are not spoofed, reducing fraudulent activity.

How to Be Compliant with TRACED Act and STIR/SHAKEN
The STIR/SHAKEN standards use digital certificates from the service carriers to assure call recipients that a caller ID has been altered. The TRACED Act, the first federal law established to curb robocalls, was passed in December 2019.
Therefore now all service providers are required to implement STIR/SHAKEN call authentication and robocall mitigation measures by June 2021.
