With telco, energy, healthcare, and other critical infrastructure connected to 5G, how well is the industry prepared to deal with cyber threats? We must protect 5G networks and the businesses and industries that use them. In this session, Leonid Burakovsky, Senior Director, 5G Product Management from Palo Alto Networks will discuss and recommend how to mitigate different attack vectors on all 5G layers (signaling, data, applications, management). In this panel session with Intel, we’ll cover automation aspects of 5G security, best practices to use AI and ML technologies. For 5G to live up to its promise of transforming industries, companies need the confidence that 5G networks and services have enterprise-grade security today and in the future.
