AT&T outlines 5G security concerns in new report

AT&T has urged organisations to do more to address the cyber security threats posed by 5G and place more focus on security automation and virtualisation.

The American telecommunications giant made the warnings in its latest cyber security report, based on a survey conducted by 451 research that surveyed 704 cyber security professionals working in firms with more than 500 employees.


Cyber-physical systems explained

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are a mix of computation, networking and physical processes, in which the embedded computational algorithms and networks have the power to monitor and control the physical components.

By using a combination of machines, sensory devices, embedded computational intelligence and various communication mechanisms, CPS monitor physical elements with computer-based algorithms tied to the internet. This means they are capable of autonomously functioning based on their physical surroundings.

In light of advancements in analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and communications, there is increased demand for intelligent machines that can interact with the environment around them, such as driverless cars which monitor and communicate with their surroundings, and smart appliances that optimise energy consumption. CPS are stimulating significant changes in quality of life and forming the basis of smart infrastructure, products, and services.

As this kind of technology continues to become more integrated into our everyday lives, here are four areas of CPS we can expect to come to the fore.


Spycams to dominate 5G IoT market until 2023

Nearly three quarters of 5G IoT endpoint devices installed in 2020 will be outdoor surveillance cameras, taking the total number of 5G-equipped spycams to 6.2 million.

That’s according to analyst house Gartner, which has just released its latest predictions for 5G IoT use cases (where connected devices leverage the emerging next-gen mobile network for connectivity).


5G will not solve UK’s rural connectivity problems

The introduction of 5G networks will not solve the connectivity issues affecting many rural communities across the UK, new research has claimed.

uSwitch.com says its latest survey has found that many phone users are still struggling with 4G signal, and many have no current plans to upgrade to 5G because most of the launch sites are cities and urban areas.


5G and the social world

With its faster speeds, greater network capacity and incredibly low latency, 5G is set to be a game changer. Each new generation of communication technology has brought significant changes to the way we work and live. The network driven world began with 3G, marking the start of mobile internet and 4G enabling video streaming and social media. 5G is set to amplify all these things, but it’s not just about downloading video from Netflix faster.
