The UK takes the security of its telecoms networks seriously. Next generation networks like 5G raise security risks as well as economic opportunities. This is why the Government has undertaken a comprehensive Review of the supply arrangements for the UK telecoms Critical NationaI Infrastrure.
The Review addresses three key questions:
- How should we incentivise telecoms operators to improve security standards and
practices in 5G and full fibre networks?
- How should we address the security challenges posed by vendors?
- How can we create sustainable diversity in the telecoms supply chain?
