5G Security: What Can We Learn from the IT World?

5G will become a critical enabler for the digital economy and digital society in the coming decade and marks a fundamental change in how networks are built, operated, and managed. It presents a massive opportunity for service providers across many industry verticals but it also introduces new security requirements.

Virtualised network architectures can provide communication services to billions of devices but they also need security at a larger scale. Hosting applications in distributed edge compute sites brings new security threats and attack vectors.

In this session we will share details on new security challenges in the evolving 5G ecosystem:

  • Mitigating infrastructure DDoS attacks in an all-virtual 5G network
  • Securing mission-critical applications in edge compute architectures
  • The role of API security in 5G architectures
  • Network visibility at scale in a 5G environment
  • Automation and orchestration of security policies
