COSTA MESA, CALIF.—The FCC plans to hold a July 11 summit to examine how phone companies are implementing SHAKEN/STIR technology, which is designed to help weed out “spoofed” phone calls that appear to be from legitimate sources.

Law360 is covering the latest news and, once again, they turned to Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Artin Betpera for insights. Betpera tells Law360 that the summit is “a positive sign that the FCC is taking the SHAKEN/STIR call authentication framework seriously.”
