Recommendation - adopted by the European Commission on 26 March 2019 - on a common approach across the European Union (EU) to the security of 5G networks.
The Recommendation features a set of operational steps and measures aimed at ensuring a high level of cybersecurity of 5G networks across the European Union. The adoption of this document followed the support demonstrated by the European Council for a concerted approach to the security of 5G networks. The relevance of 5G networks was also highlighted in a Joint Communication on EU-China relations.
The recommendations are a combination of legislative and policy instruments aimed at protecting economies, societies and democratic systems. They include measures at a national level - national risk assessment of 5G network infrastructures - and at EU level - exchange of information and completion of coordinated risk assessment.
