WILL 5G BE SECURE ENOUGH DURING EARLY DEPLOYMENTS?
As retailers, payments providers and consumers prepare for the coming 5G world, there remain concerns about how well that mobile network technology will protect consumer privacy and security.
Retailers, payments providers and even some consumers — especially those first-wave adopters, the types of people willing to stand in lines for new phones and other gear — are well along in envisioning the coming 5G world. But there remain concerns about how well that mobile network technology will protect consumer privacy and security — and that may prove significant going into 2019, given the increased focus on data protection. That’s not to strike an alarmist tone about the coming deployment of 5G, which promises benefits to merchants, marketers, healthcare, FinTech, payments, connected cars, the Internet of Things and other areas. Verizon and Samsung recently said they would launch U.S. 5G phones in the first half of 2019, underscoring the near-term approach of increased mobile speeds and other features of 5G. That doesn’t mean 5G will all happen at once, of course, as some big tech players have announced relatively delayed plans for the mobile technology – and it will take some time before solid 5G use cases emerge and make their way into white papers and “best practice” highlight sections on vendor websites.
