New Report: National Security Strategy for 5G: Findings & Recommendations on Meeting the 5G Challenge
On December 2, 2019, Sasakawa USA published a new report, "National Security Strategy for 5G: Findings & Recommendations on Meeting the 5G Challenge." The report was written by the Trilateral Cyber Security Commission.
Sasakawa USA convened the commission to make recommendations to the governments of the United States, Japan, and like-minded European countries individually and collectively to improve the security of their information networks. Some of the most critical challenges to all these countries are the economic and security risks of future 5G networks. These rapidly developing networks will become a new and dominant form of critical infrastructure. Unless the free market democratic countries can develop policies and take actions in the near term, China is poised to dominate this emerging market and could use its position to undermine the national security of its adversaries.
