The fifth-generation (5G) of wireless technology represents a complete transformation of telecommunication networks, introducing a vast array of new connections, capabilities, and services. These advancements will provide the connection for billions of devices and will pave the way for applications that will enable new innovation, new markets, and economic growth around the world. However, these developments also introduce significant risks that threaten national security, economic security, and impact other national and global interests. Given these threats,
5G networks will be an attractive target for criminals and foreign adversaries to exploit for valuable information and intelligence.
To address these concerns, the United States National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) developed the National Strategy to Secure 5G, a strategic document that expands on how the United States Government will secure 5G infrastructure domestically and abroad. The National Strategy to Secure 5G aligns to the National Cyber Strategy and establishes four lines of effort: (1) facilitating the rollout of 5G domestically; (2) assessing the cybersecurity risks to and identifying core security principles of 5G capabilities and infrastructure; (3) addressing risks to United States economic and national security during development and deployment of 5G
infrastructure worldwide; and (4) promoting responsible global development and deployment of secure and reliable 5G infrastructure.
