5G For Federal Government | 5G Training for Federal Agencies

As consumers become familiar with 5G technology, federal government agencies also are looking to 5G to support their missions.

According to analysts, it’s vital for federal agencies to evaluate their infrastructure for 5G preparedness because existing practices and legacy security solutions do not meet what’s needed to secure 5G.

Better capacity, lower latency and massive device connectivity are key 5G attributes that have received much attention. But do these modern wireless characteristics translate into benefits for the federal government?

There are many points of view regarding a wide range of potential use cases for 5G across government. Certainly, all federal agencies that have users who carry mobile devices can benefit from 5G.  For example, The U.S. Postal Service could leverage high data rates and expanded bandwidth to more precisely track drivers and packages.

The Defense Department could also take advantage of 5G’s low latency todeliver information to war fighters and commanders in near real time.

Then there’s the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other disaster response entities that are expected to use 5G’s small form factor to create pop-up networks, enabling local connectivity and forging communications links between first-responder teams.

Additionally, Veterans Affairs could utilize 5G tosend data-rich, high-resolution images wirelessly from the imaging room to a doctor working on another floor.

In other words, 5G technology allows government agencies to put more devices on the network than you could before. It’s like going from your backyard pool to swimming in the ocean.

Thanks to 5G, Federal government agencies can now start to connect things, automate, accrue data and make better decisions.

But there’s also another side.

5G technology is vulnerable to cyber-attacks.  Consequently, federal agencies need to deploy a strong security posture as they undergo digital transformation and begin to embrace 5G networks.

Cybersecurity professionals call for zero-trust security for federal agencies. Extending zero-trust security into 5G with machine learning–powered next-generation physical and virtual firewalls helps protect end-to-end 5G infrastructures across all layers and key locations of the distributed, cloud-native, multicloud 5G architecture.

Segmenting 5G networks for zero-trust access, an architectural security strategy rooted in the principle of “never trust, always verify,” can also reduce the volume and impact of cyber-attacks.

Comprehensive protection of federal agencies’ 5G infrastructures also requires consistent, real-time granular visibility of threats passing through the networks to be able to stop them in real time.

Based on sensitivity or criticality, steps also can be taken to identify and control the level of access granted to each device and user on the network.
