Is 5G safer or will we be exposed to greater cybersecurity threats? Although the COVID19 pandemic slowed down 5G launches last year, the rollout of this fifth-generation wireless technology will gather pace in 2021. The technology will undoubtedly, make life easier for users worldwide but it will also open up new cybersecurity risks for consumers, governments, and businesses alike. Here are some of the main concerns:


The Arrival of 5G and the Potential Risks that come with it


  1. Greater need for monitoring Traffic Routing Points of 5G software-based systems
  2. Challenges of creating new ways for protection from New Emerging Threats
  3. Increase in security standards required as IoT Devices become more common
  4. Device information can be easily revealed due to Lack of Encryption making it easier for hackers to plan their attacks
