Commissioner Rosenworcel Remarks at CSIS on Mitigating 5G Security Risks
I believe it is no longer enough to be first to 5G—the networks we deploy must also be secure. And to build 5G security effectively, we must build a market for more secure 5G equipment. That means making sure our companies can continue to innovate and encouraging other countries to invest in 5G security, too. This is a big task. As with all significant endeavors, the hard part is where to start. But I have some ideas—about where the Federal Communications Commission should begin. First, the FCC must work with other agencies to help manage supply chain risk. Second, the FCC should charter a new 5G security council. Third, the FCC needs to make cyber hygiene a priority.
