If the US 5G
rollout is to reach its full potential, network security must be a priority.
But what are the security risks of 5G, and how can the US win the global 5G
race? On the latest episode of “Explain to Shane,” I sat down
with Tommy Ross, Senior Policy Director at BSA | The Software Alliance and
author of BSA’s position paper titled “Securing 5G: A Call to Harness
Software Innovation,” which discusses the transition from hardware-dominated
networking to a software-centric model for 5G. Together, we addressed the
availability and importance of 5G network security tools.
