NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has posted for comment a preliminary draft—the first of three volumes of an upcoming practice guide on 5G cybersecurity. This practice guide can benefit organizations operating or using 5G networks, as well as network operators and equipment vendors, and may be of particular interest to the telecommunications and public safety communities. By releasing each volume of the practice guide as a preliminary draft, we can share the progress made to date, use the feedback received to shape future volumes of the practice guide, and feature the latest 5G technologies and practices that organizations can use as they transition to 5G.
