Emerging 5G networks promise to deliver high-network speeds and enable robust mobile capabilities that organizations will quickly come to rely upon to support a variety of systems and architectures. Just as with all new technologies, 5G presents unique risk concerns that enterprises must evaluate with respect to their own technical and organizational contexts. As reliance on 5G grows, so too will the cybersecurity risks as organizations will rapidly increase the volume of data transfers over 5G. At the same time, businesses will need to learn about, and respond to, inherent risks in the technology. This presentation will describe emerging cybersecurity risk dimensions in 5G and identify potential approaches to managing the risks.
