University of Waterloo: DEFENCE AND SECURITY FORESIGHT GROUP
Watch Defence and Security Foresight Group (DSF-G) webinar on the roll-out of 5G technology in Canada. Our panelists discuss the importance of 5G adoption to Canada’s competitiveness and its digital economy. They also discuss some of the arguments found in public and security sector debates about the threats and challenges of foreign ownership of this key infrastructural development. As different countries will experience unprecedented digital change connecting more of our critical business applications and infrastructures to the Internet — driving innovation and GDP growth, 5G technology will be essential to our economic growth. However, along with these opportunities comes unprecedented vulnerability. This panel highlights the associated risks of 5G deployment and adoption and will explain what risk mitigations are being explored by countries and companies globally. Visit the webpage here.
