Your powerful, end-to-end 5G security solutions

Be confident in your telecom security strategy. As 5G becomes more pervasive, it’s crucial to examine your existing security approach models. Stay ahead of digital disruption with Nokia’s expansive portfolio that includes cybersecurity consulting, security products and managed security services.

Transform your 5G security through a team approach – requiring internal teams (IT, security, operations, etc.) and external teams (MSSP, consulting, security products) to work together to uniquely protect your company data and secure the critical infrastructure as networks upgrade from LTE to 5G. At Nokia, we have an all-in-one approach when it comes to 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.

Today, there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more sophisticated and innovative. Having a strong 5G cybersecurity strategy offers a clear, detailed plan that standardizes security across an organization. It all starts with conducting an assessment of your current telco security posture to help you better understand your current environment. That’s why a strong telco cybersecurity approach is critical to defend against cybercrime.

3 most 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
