Scott Bartlett, head of cyber security consulting at the Leonardo group, is attending.
“5G enables greater use of machine-to-machine communications in safety critical environments such as power distribution,” he said. “This means that any vulnerabilities in 5G could allow a hacker to disrupt critical national infrastructure. In the context of energy distribution, this would mean a hack on a single part of the energy distribution infrastructure for the UK could result in regional blackouts through the malicious exploitation of the decision logic used to balance voltage across the UK.”
