NSA and CISA Release Part III of Guidance on Securing 5G Cloud Infrastructures

Original release date: December 2, 2021

CISA has announced the joint National Security Agency (NSA) and CISA publication of the third of a four-part series, Security Guidance for 5G Cloud Infrastructures. Part III: Data Protection examines security during all phases of the data lifecycle—in transit, in use, and at rest. The guidance focuses on protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data within a 5G cloud infrastructure to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. This series is being published under the Enduring Security Framework (ESF), a public-private cross-sector working group led by NSA and CISA.

CISA has also released a set of four 5G educational videos to enhance the awareness and importance of the safe and secure development and deployment of 5G infrastructure. 

CISA encourages 5G providers, integrators, and network operators to review the guidance and consider the recommendations. See CISA’s 5G Security and Resilience webpage for more information.
