5G networks are being rapidly deployed promising higher bandwidth, more connectivity, and less latency. While these features will have benefits to society, greater reliance on ubiquitous high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity comes with increased demand to secure 5G networks. The time to embed greater security to mitigate threats before they occur is now. In this presentation, you will learn why 5G networks represent a distinct and major evolutionary phase in wireless mobile communication. More importantly, you will understand why 5G networks need greater protection and improved security to deliver the full potential of 5G. You will learn about 5G security standards and enhancements that focus on improving security. Further, you will understand why the use of virtualized network functions and containerized network functions via open-source software requires a critical cybersecurity framework. Particular focus will be provided for Open RAN and private wireless networks. This presentation is targeted toward helping you fully appreciate the need for security in 5G networks and best practices and standards to meet the goal of the most secure, most protected wireless network possible.
