Course Description

The 6G Cybersecurity Course provides an in-depth exploration of the security challenges and considerations in the emerging field of 6G networks. This course covers the unique security risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with 6G technology, including network architecture, protocols, and infrastructure. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of 6G cybersecurity principles, strategies, and countermeasures to ensure the secure deployment and operation of future 6G networks.

The advent of 6G technology is still about a decade away, but as with any new technology, cybersecurity threats will emerge that need to be addressed. The nature of 6G cybersecurity threats will depend, in large part, on any inherent vulnerabilities in the design, development, and implementation of 6G wireless communications. 6G cybersecurity threats will also depend on efforts to remediate existing vulnerabilities. As always with security, its successful application will depend on the due diligence of appropriate risk assessments and threat modeling. Experts in this field believe 6G cybersecurity will look very different from cybersecurity modalities today. It’s likely that 6G cybersecurity will be doing away with once-ubiquitous security tactics such as passwords.
