Telecoms Resilience and Security Working Group

5G is here now, and we are seeing new devices and networks being deployed rapidly, along with the continuing development of 5G testbeds and trials. 5G is an essential element of the UK’s digital fabric and the underpinning for the 4th Industrial Revolution, which if the UK grasps early, will raise productivity and provide a comparative advantage.

But these networks also pose challenges. Firstly, the technical nature of them increases the attack surface for potential attacks. Secondly, the adoption of 5G by other parts of our Critical National Infrastructure will increase our reliance on such networks, and likely the attractiveness to attacking them by hostile actors.

techUK’s Telecoms Resilience and Security Working Group bring members from our telecoms network operators, equipment vendors and system integrators together, along with our cyber security companies to help formulate how industry should respond to the Government’s Telecoms Supply Chain Review. Covering both fixed and wireless infrastructure, this working group explores a variety of topics, including the 5G core, complexity, regulation, security, resilience and risk management and private networks to determine best practice for an industry response to the Review.
