GANESH NARAYANAN, South East Asia Lead – 5G /Next-Gen Telco/ SW Security Accenture Security
5G brings together various new cutting-edge technologies like Cloud, NB IoT, Edge computing, Virtualization and Network slicing, increasing the unknown vulnerabilities and hence expanding the attack surface posing many risks to the service provider and to users. The security threats in 5GT include networks, infrastructure, application and databases, including identity and access breach resulting in service disruption, network degradation and eventually loss of trust in the services offered to the market. Specific 5G differentiators like MEC, Edge services, low latency applications and critical infrastructure applications, need highest levels of data/application/network identity, access, authentication and authorization management supported by encryption and digital certificate life cycle management.
Accenture with its global expertise in 5G networks and security, in partnership with THALES global 5G security products and solutions, provides you a holistic end-end visibility of 5G security across end user terminals, access networks, RAN, back-haul/mid-haul/front haul transport networks, Core networks all the way to internet client facing applications. In this webinar we explain to you how, the security services provided by Accenture include pre & post 5G network/ data security assessments, target 5G security architecture &controls, deployment of Thales data security solutions and a next generation 5G Security Operations Centre that monitors and detects alerts, events and incidents based on 3GPP/NIST/GSMA best practices for 5GT security.
