09 Dec 2019 Conclusions of the Council of the EU on 5G and security-related risks
On 3 December, the Council of the EU released its conclusions on the significance of 5G to the European Economy and the need to mitigate security risks linked to 5G.
In March 2019, the European Commission published a recommendation on cybersecurity for 5G networks. This document lists actions that need to be undertaken by Member States and the EU in order to assess and minimise cybersecurity risks affecting 5G networks. Following this publication, Member States carried out a national risk assessment, that was compiled by the NIS Cooperation Group* last October. In addition, ENISA published a threat landscape for 5G networks.
*The NIS Cooperation Group is composed of representatives from Member States, the Commission and ENISA.
