Thank you for joining us at the Ringside!
The second Ringside Session is a wrap. We would like to thank all the viewers who joined us! For those who missed the live Session: Don’t worry! The on demand version is available.
In the Session, two executive operator representatives, two industry leaders, a security expert, and Arun Bansal from Ericsson joined Shivvy Jervis, our moderator, to discuss whether 5G will be key to secure IoT & Industry 4.0.
The participants got into some tough discussions about what does ‘being secure’ mean for IoT & Industry 4.0, if the conventional IT model do the job or if 5G can offer a better security foundation. Even if no comfortable consensus was reached, now we all know more about the demands industries have on security solutions for IoT and how 5G enhances the operator security proposition.
In the weeks to come, we will also follow up on the topics and questions raised during the live debate with more in-depth material. Until then, make sure to take a look at the Ericsson 5G and IoT security related studies in the section below.
