The Fifth Generation of wireless technology, or 5G, will enable new innovation, new markets, and economic growth around the world. Tens of billions of new devices will be connected to the Internet through 5G technology. These connections will empower a vast array of new and enhanced critical services, from autonomous vehicles and telemedicine, to automated manufacturing and advances to traditional critical infrastructure, such as smart grid electricity distribution. Given 5G’s scope, the stakes for safeguarding these vital networks could not be higher.
