The potential for dynamic configurations in 5G requires new, dynamic and flexible security architectures. 5G network slices must be appropriately secured for different use cases, and as a result, telcos must focus on measurable security management and assurance. The webinar introduces new security strategies, architectures and practical use cases to transform security operations to be orchestrated & automated by using machine learning, multi-dimensional analytics and threat intelligence in order to drive rapid and predictive responses to threats.

Our live webinar highlights following operational sections:
