Prague 5G Security Conference


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosts an international expert conference on the security of 5G networks at the Czernin Palace in Prague on May 2 and 3, 2019 under the auspices of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš. Dozens of experts on 5G networks and cyber security from the EU, NATO sates and other countries attend the conference.

The conference entitled "Prague 5G Security Conference" will be opened by Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and Minister of Foreign Affairs Tomáš Petříček. There will be lectures and workshops on various aspects of 5G networks.

The aim of the conference is to define non-binding recommendations on how to proceed safely with the introduction of 5G networks. The recommendations will also contribute to discussions within the EU and NATO on a common approach to cyber threats, as well as to the emerging panel in the frame of the UN First Committee. The results of the otherwise closed expert conference will be publicly available.
