5G Security Overview

Cyber security concept of protecting and scanning the computer of possible virus attacks

The full deployment of 5G will happen very soon. While the expectations are high, so are the security concerns.

A significantly higher number of devices and increased use of virtualization and the cloud will likely entail more 5G security threats and a larger multi-faceted attack surface.

Cybersecurity professionals are keenly aware that in order to achieve a strong and healthy communication network for future, the industry must maintain a major focus on 5G security.

Some professionals vouch for a holistic approach, in particular the maintenance of a clean 5G network which prevents the transfer of malware to connected devices and protects customers against cyber attacks, as well as a 5G network with security mechanisms which prevent unauthorized command and control, alias C2, to operate connected devices.

Security advocates also call for an open and secure 5G network that allows network resources to be safely exposed to third parties – so that mobile operators can maximize the adoption of 5G and the monetization of 5G network resources.

  • Government personnel who wish to learn the foundation of 5G security in detail as well as to keep up on trends in the 5G security field
  • Investors and contractors who plan to make investments in industry, especially where 5G technology is concerned
  • Executives and managers of 5G security systems
  • Technicians, operators, and maintenance personnel who are or will be working in 5G deployment
