While 5G security will create new considerations, you can leverage the next-generation network to improve your security posture. Encryption is still a critical cyber security tool, although 4G’s inherent baseline security remains strong.
Companies will be able to set up security for applications and create updates and protocols unique to each device. This marks another change from 4G, which has universal update settings.
And with 5G, users can add better protections to devices that share sensitive information and limit updates from other devices. Smartphones, tablets, wearables and security cameras set to higher security levels than the smart appliances used in the office break room, and users can have more say in setting priorities.
As 5G becomes more widely used, its cyber security needs will come into greater focus. Understanding how your infrastructure will need to adapt to the changes it will bring about will give you a head start on updating your security systems.
