FCC Council Addresses 5G Network Security Which Isn’t Actually Secure Yet; Deployment Continues Anyway

By B.N. Frank

Reports have indicated that 4G service is still more private, reliable and secure than 5G (see 1, 2, 3).  Additionally, U.S. opposition to 5G deployment has been ongoing due to a variety of concerns including cybersecurity (see 1, 2), public safety (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), economic and environmental risks (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).  In fact, lawsuits have been filed against deployment on Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and in space (see 1, 2).

Nevertheless, the 5G rollout continues in the U.S. (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11) despite recognized cybersecurity risks, etc.

Revamped security council outlines 5G, open RAN, Wi-Fi priorities

The latest version of the FCC’s Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) held its first meeting to outline the federal advisory committee’s priorities. They focus on 5G network security, along with technologies like open RAN and virtualization.

FCC Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel recently reestablished CSRIC in its eighth iteration, and this time is bringing in more participation from additional government partners as well as public interest groups, alongside industry stakeholders.

Co-chairing CSRIC VIII are Billy Bob Brown Jr., executive assistant director for emergency communications for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) under the Department of Homeland Security, and Verizon Chief Information Security Officer Nasrin Rezai.

In opening remarks at Wednesday’s meeting, Rosenworcel pointed to a number of large recent breaches, including KPN, a wireless carrier in the Netherlands, that discovered calls of 6.5 million subscribers may have been susceptible to monitoring because of insecure network equipment. She also cited the SolarWinds breach, as well as last month when “a hacker stole data on more than 50 million customers from a nationwide wireless carrier.”

T-Mobile was hit with a customer data breach in August that affected more than 50 million people, after a hacker compromised servers.

“The truth is that every day in our connected digital life there are too many cyber events that have the potential to harm the safety and well-being of people and businesses across the country. And no entity is immune from this threat – whether large or small, public or private, prepared or unprepared,” Rosenworcel said.

Network security is particularly important in the transition to 5G, as networks will connect countless more devices and things, she added.

The FCC is supposed to protect Americans from the telecom and cable industries.  The agency has catered to them instead for decades (see 1, 2, 3) – hence the lawsuits.

In 2019, telecom executives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they had NO independent studies proving that 5G is safe.

Later in 2019, then presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted with this information and said:

So far, there has been no indication that anyone in now President Biden’s administration has ordered 5G be “studied thoroughly”.

In May of this year, scientists submitted a letter to President Biden asking him to protect the public from 5G and other unsafe technology.  Instead, he committed to adding more.

Americans opposed to any or all of this may

  • click here to contact their legislators and ask for protection from unsafe levels of wireless radiation (Bluetooth, cell phone, Wi-Fi, 5G, 6G, etc.)

Opposition to 5G is worldwide.  Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums.  The majority of scientists oppose deployment.
