WASHINGTON – Today, global tech trade association ITI welcomed the release of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) 5G Strategy, and commended CISA’s recognition of several recommendations from ITI’s 5G Policy Principles and Essentials for Global Policymakers. ITI’s principles identify innovation and investment, deployment and access to spectrum, security, and standards as four areas where sound policy approaches and government action are essential for 5G.

“5G technology represents a pivotal shift in the United States’ and world’s digital infrastructure, and with that shift comes critical security and policymaking considerations,” said John Miller, ITI’s Senior Vice President for Policy and Senior Counsel. “The tech industry appreciates CISA’s leadership in recognizing where it can play a unique role in 5G implementation while simultaneously acknowledging the need for government-wide coordination to ensure a trusted and resilient 5G ecosystem.”
