OIC-CERT is the the Computer Emergency Response Team of The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. I’ve been following their excellent efforts around 5G security for a while and was glad to see how seriously they are taking it.

For example, about a year ago OIC-CERT published “Achieving 5G Security through Open Standards“. The organization also recently held a 5G Security Framework Workshop

And now it has started rolling-out of the OIC-CERT 5G Security Framework Adoption at GISEC, the Middle East and Africa’s most influential and connected cybersecurity event.

The framework (in progress) is available here: https://www.oic-cert.org/members/index.php/cyber-security-landscape/feeds/10-cyber-threats/32-5g-security-wg

I will continue monitoring their efforts with interest.
