Top hackers tested the data security of local 5G networks with permission

The event offers participating information security professionals a unique opportunity to test technology and solutions that are not yet widely available and to better understand their various security challenges. All findings are reported to the owners of the challenges, who utilize them in the development of the security of technology and solutions.

5G technology and networks are key building blocks of our digital society. The importance of local networks to our society is irreplaceable as guarantors of the operation of critical services such as hospitals, ports and industry.

"This is the best reality in which the Finnish cyber ecosystem works well: together with companies, the research world, authorities and hackers, we ensure that the cyber security of local 5G networks of the future is made better together," says Traficom's Technology and Strategy director Kirsi Karlamaa.
