Supply chain security Considerations for 5G deployments - where are we in this journey?

Supply chain attacks have increased exponentially over the past years. In this session, experts from PwC (Silke Holtmans) and Red Hat (François Duthilleul) will present some of these new initiatives and how they will contribute to mitigate the threat vectors of 5G core and RAN networks. They will also depict how 5G network functions can already be secured today on cloud based platforms and areas that require further attention. Audience will be requested to give their opinion by live voting between several proposals of targeted questions to fuel the discussion and make this session fun and interactive.
