Secure your telecom security strategy with confidence. As 5G becomes more pervasive, it's time to reassess your existing security approach models. Stay ahead of digital disruption with Nokia's comprehensive offerings in cybersecurity consulting, security products and managed security services.
Elevate your 5G security through a team approach. Upgrading from LTE to 5G and securing the critical infrastructure demands a unified approach, bringing together internal departments (IT, security and operations) and external partners (including MSSPs, consultants and security products). At Nokia, we take a holistic approach for unparalleled network security.
That is the average cost of a full data breach and costs are increasing. Every second counts and that's why security can't be an afterthought. Be proactive and get full visibility of your 5G security readiness to stay ahead of cyber attacks.
What is 5G cybersecurity?
5G cybersecurity is the practice of protecting networks, programs, and systems from digital attacks. What's to gain from cyber attacks? Access to sensitive information or interrupting normal business processes.
In today's world, devices outnumber people, and cyber attackers are becoming more sophisticated and innovative. Establishing a robust 5G cybersecurity strategy offers a clear, detailed plan that standardizes security across an organization. Starting with an in-depth assessment of your existing telco security landscape to help you better understand your current environment. That's why a strong telco cybersecurity approach is critical to defend against cybercrime.
What are common 5G cyber threats?
A program inserted into a system to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of data.
Paying a ransom using online payment methods to regain access to your system or data.
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
Making an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with excessive traffic from many locations and sources most commonly as Botnets.
What are 5G cybersecurity challenges?
Cybersecurity challenges come in many forms. Cloud, webscale and distributed application architectures are exponentially increasing the exploitable security exposure surface. As complexity rises, conventional security methods are no longer a match to modern day threats making it increasingly harder to avoid making errors that hackers can exploit. By securing your critical infrastructure and leveraging Machine Learning/AI, you can mitigate and respond quickly to cyber attacks. Making these five key end-to-end operations critical for CSPs to address when it comes to 5G cybersecurity - radio transport, telco cloud, IoT and devices, security operations, and slicing security.
The biggest 5G cybersecurity challenges that many organizations are currently facing:
- Lack of security automation
- Increased threat actors
- Highly sophisticated attacks
- Fragmented tool landscape
- Stringent regulation and compliance requirements
