5G has a lot of upsides like faster speeds, lower latency and the potential to distribute a lot more processing power. This makes 5G attractive to businesses, like e-commerce portals that manage massive warehouses behind the scenes. This makes it a vehicle for the Internet of Things (IoT).

“IoT is growing at a rapid pace and its adoption is spreading into various industries such as telecom, healthcare, retail, automobiles, manufacturing, supply chain, and service operations. However, security remains as one of the barriers,” said Padmanabhan Iyer, Managing Director and Global CEO, 3i Infotech.

Not only are IoT devices more vulnerable to being hacked, 5G makes it faster to steal data.

“With the roll-out of 5G continuing in 2020, cybersecurity stack needs to have visibility and control of such data movement else organizations risk being unable to identify data theft at the speed necessary,” predicts Forcepoint.
