5G Innovations and Cybersecurity Risk

5G Innovations and Cybersecurity Risk

Oct 21, 2022

For the past few years, scientists have evaluated the capabilities of 5G networks, including their ability to support innovative services. 5G can potentially affect millions of people's lives by optimizing existing technologies to reduce harmful emissions, improve health services and increase safety.

Conversely, 5G’s performance requirements, including coverage, interoperability, reduced latency, improved bandwidth, integration, and reliability, may conflict with security and privacy laws such as the US State of California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). As a result, it is critical for practitioners to understand 5G’s risk factors, such as unique identifiers, software-defined networking (SDN) vulnerabilities, and interoperability’s impact on strong access control.
