The Future Of 5G May Be Bright, But Is It Secure?

The standardization that 5G brings is good for interoperability, but if implemented poorly, presents a greater cyber risk to future cities. 5G will replace not just legacy cellular standards, but a multitude of other wireless and wired communication standards and therefore its scope will cover personal use, business operations, transportation and smart city infrastructure. This, together with its support for dense IoT networks – which could potentially have over 1 million devices per square kilometre – means an exponential increase in the attack surface and exposure to cyber attacks on an unprecedented scale.
