5G networks are creating exciting new opportunities for businesses to innovate their products and services, delivering feature-rich network capabilities that will enable every more compelling service for consumers. The global deployment of 5G is certain to continue the industry megatrend of embedding mobile communications into the very fabric of society. Alongside these greater opportunities will always be greater risks from those that will try to attack and compromise services and infrastructure.
