5G is very much on the business agenda at the moment and in this issue Theresa Lanowitz, Director of Cybersecurity Communications at AT&T Cybersecurity, explains why its introduction also represents a critical juncture in the evolution of security. Theresa explains that “While 5G standards address known 4G vulnerabilities and 5G networks are being architected with more security than any previous network, businesses must still prepare for security threats, both existing and new, and adjust policies and practices accordingly. An expanded attack surface provides an opportunity for new threats to emerge, as well as for the potential proliferation of unpatched existing ones.”

5G will also see an increase in the uptake of IoT, and as Daniel Markuson of NordVPN points out this will bring its own security concerns: “The increased speed and improved architecture will mean the rise of IoT devices. More and more of our household items will be connected to the network - and they’ll become the hackers’ target. Criminals prefer targeting new technology, especially low-security and inexpensive gadgets, as they are more vulnerable than well-established technologies.”

You can expect more coverage of 5G in upcoming issues of the magazine as, in the words of Theresa Lanowitz, “The network is now part of the brand promise to give enterprises performance and security - otherwise customers will shop elsewhere.”
