Learning Objectives

5G implementation across the globe creates new opportunities and efficiencies for many businesses, however its use will also create increased cybersecurity risk. If you are planning to use 5G, as a business you must be prepared. Because 5G is the conversion to a mostly all-software network, future upgrades will be software updates and because of the cyber vulnerabilities of software, the tougher part of the real 5G roll out is to retool how we secure the most important network of the 21st century and the ecosystem of devices and applications that sprout from that network.

Key Takeaways:

  • Will we see a mass move towards virtualised cybersecurity?

  • Ensuring endpoint security is fit for purpose

  • Is a move to zero-trust appropriate?

  • What role do the networks have to play in 5G security?
