4G/5G Wireless and Internet of Things Security

Tyson Macaulay, a Chief Technology Officer and a Chief Security Strategist participates in Risk Roundup to discuss “4G/5G Wireless and Internet of Things (IoT) Security”.



The market demand for the change in wireless networks is coming at a neck-breaking pace as the internet of nano things to internet of things, smartphones, tablets, laptops and other form of computers are rapidly becoming a way of being and a way of life.

Wireless networks are growing in importance, necessity and demand. In the coming years, wireless networks will need to handle mobile computing and communications needs of not only individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA), but also billions of internet of things, internet of everything and internet of nano-things devices and machines across cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).

From smart city sensors, to smart homes, smart autos, smart healthcare, smart enterprises and more, there is a growing need for fast and ubiquitous network access that connects cyberspace, geospace and space.

As we the humans navigate our way towards supporting a 4G or 5G connected CGS world, the on-going and emerging, complex security risks will likely become a cause of great concern. The time is now to take the security risks of 5G infrastructures seriously into consideration. The time is now to talk about 5G security risks!

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
