TLB Editors note
The following article is pretty much MSM coverage of 5G, EXCEPT John Costello, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center says… We have to make sure that the ecosystem is ready and prepared.”
This is the first time in recent memory, other than a few committee meetings in the U.S. House of Representatives, where the Ecosystem has been addressed. We are hoping Director Costello is addressing more that just trees being cleared for a clear signal, as an Ecosystem embraces All living things.
Most of the Federal Regulators and Agencies that have anything to do with 5G have appeared to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to anything that would point to the harm already caused by the limited use and roll-out of 5G to Humans and other living things.
Side note reminder: Activist having contact with government bodies or agencies in regard to 5G should keep in mind, and have reference material in hand, that 5G was developed by the Military as a Weapon, not a digital information delivery platform. It is Microwave and it dangerous.
Partnerships Crucial to Advancing U.S. 5G, Beating China, Feds Say
Federal government officials warned about the risks and challenges of rolling out 5G wireless networks – particularly in terms of the threat China poses in its global advancement of 5G – and emphasized that use of public-private partnerships in developing America’s vision for 5G networks will be critical for ensuring network security and staying internationally competitive.
Bill Evanina, director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center, emphasized at the April 16 INSA Spring Symposium that if the United States doesn’t step up the pace in 5G development now, China will own the global apparatus for 5G service in the near future.
“How we drive, build, moderate, and I’ll even say govern 5G, for me, has significant national security implications that if we don’t deal with this now, 10 years from now it’s going to be too late,” Evanina said. “Three years from now, it’s going to be too late.”
John Costello, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center, detailed several categories of national security risk that the U.S. faces on the 5G front, particularly in terms of 5G in relation to internet of things (IoT) devices. These were the risks of disruption, espionage or compromise, and ecosystem.
“Going forward, you see the sheer number of devices,” Costello said. “Yeah, they’re going to be there, and … there’s both the enterprise risk of protecting your IoT devices and the manufacturer risk of, you know, vulnerability compromise. … We have to make sure that that ecosystem is ready and prepared.”
But going forward, Evanina said it’s feasible for America to prevent China’s 5G domination by creating a “perfect public-private partnership” to define what 5G will be in the United States and to drive “hard telecommunication processes of which everything will prosper.”
Costello added that a key component will be in ensuring the government has a specified set of risk criteria for assessing potential vendor partners.
“We want to make sure that we have a proper set of risk criteria by which we identify a high-risk vendor, and we have a slate of options by which we would mitigate risk, whether … tactical level when they’re working in private industry or whether it is their presence in certain sections of this critical infrastructure” Costello said. “We don’t want to continue playing the tactical game. … We want to play the long game where we have a more productive conversation … about high-risk vendors in our supply chain.”
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
