Security officials from EU nations, Japan, the United States and Australia gathered in Prague on Thursday and Friday to discuss 5G security threats.
Two-day Prague 5G Security Conference held under the auspices of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš hoped to develop a series of recommendations on how to approach future cyber threats emerging from 5G technologies.
Building a path towards consensus in 5G security is the right thing to do. A more science-based approach agreed to by the majority of the countries is the best way to balance the technological progress with the risks of this new revolutionary technology.
Unfortunately, there were some notable exceptions at the conference. Russia, China, and Huawei were not invited to attend even though they are seen as the main “source” of the risks.
