According to a Verizon expert, the awaiting rollout of the 5g, next-generation wireless technology could be a bonus for cybersecurity. Verizon’s Threat Research Advisory Center’s global director, Chris Novak said that he genuinely thinks that the rollout of 5G wireless technology will make the things better.
Furthermore, Novak said that he thinks there is a lot of development and research that they have done and he thinks others did as well as to ensure that 5G wireless network does not bring reliability and speed on the other side also done in a secure way and conveys any of those types of concerns.
Moreover, views of Novak come among increasing scrutiny on firms pursuing to win contracts to develop capabilities of 5G for national networks. Huawei, the Chinese tech giant, is a chief between the companies beneath the spotlight as the United States seeks to dissuade allies of America from buying its equipment after their claim that it is too much close to the Chinese government.
The United States recent moves resulted in major tech firms limiting their worker’s access to Huawei. On 16th May, the Commerce Department of the United States places Huawei on a blacklist, enforcing it to do business with the companies of America without the approval of the government. However, after a few days, it allows organizations to interact with Chinese Huawei in standards bodies via August as necessary for the 5G development standards.
The administration of President of the United States Trump seems to have a conflicting stand on Huawei. Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, gives his remarks that Donald Trump said, Huawei might a part of the United States negotiation of trade with China. Novak said that on the matter of either prohibiting perceived bad players from developing 5G wireless networks would decrease the data breaches.
