Trump Unveils National Strategy to Secure 5G

President Donald Trump has issued a new strategy to ensure the security of the country’s 5G wireless networks.

The National Strategy to Secure 5G outlines the administration’s vision for the U.S. to lead the development, management and deployment of reliable and secure 5G communications infrastructure in collaboration with allies and closest partners.

The strategy has four lines of effort: facilitate the domestic rollout of 5G; assess risks to and determine core security principles of 5G infrastructure and capabilities; address risks to U.S. national and economic security during the development and deployment of 5G worldwide; and promote responsible development and deployment of 5G.

The president signed on March 23 the Secure 5G and Beyond Act that requires the executive branch to come up with a strategy to ensure the security of 5G networks.
