Here Comes 5G—What are the Data Security Implications?
Organizations and consumers alike are eagerly anticipating the arrival of 5G, the latest generation of cellular mobile communications. But perhaps IT and security executives need to be thinking about the potential security implications. This latest iteration of communications technology is designed to provide benefits such as increased performance made possible by much higher data rates than offered by previous cellular networks. The latest networks will achieve the higher data rates by using higher frequency radio waves than previous cellular networks. Other possible benefits of 5G include reduced latency, energy savings, cost reduction, higher system capacity, and massive device connectivity—an important consideration for the growing Internet of Things (IoT). In addition to IoT, the high data rates and low latency of 5G are expected to support newer applications such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented (AR), as well as accommodate the huge amount of data consumption needed for autonomous vehicles to operate safely.
