The Nokia Bell Labs 5G Secured Networks course, which was just released, covers the risks that all sectors, governments, and individuals confront when it comes to securing 5G networks. Because 5G is becoming a crucial component of upcoming mission-critical Industry 4.0 technologies, protecting 5G networks has risen to the top of the priority list as an industry necessity, necessitating complete end-to-end solutions.
The 8-hour web-based course, which can be taken at the learner’s own speed, covers the procedures, techniques, technologies, and resources required to create a successful network security program that proactively prevents and addresses attacks.
Through a series of real-world case study activities, participants will evaluate the role of 5G security in network, software, and cloud environments, as well as apply their knowledge of security risks, safeguards, and viable solutions.
“5G will empower new services and applications beyond our imagination,” said Geert Van Wauwe, Chief Security Officer at Nokia. “However, user acceptance will be based on trust that information has not been breached and services cannot be compromised. Therefore, the Nokia Bell Labs 5G Secured Networks course and certification are essential for educating professionals to a high level of understanding on how to build and operate secure 5G networks.”

The Nokia Bell Labs 5G Certification Program is a “first-of-its-kind” program that offers two levels of certification – Associate and Professional – to professionals in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry, covering everything from the fundamentals of 5G networks to professional level planning and design.
This is the fourth course in the Nokia Bell Labs 5G Professional Level Certification Program, which has attracted almost 30,000 people from a variety of sectors since its introduction in February 2020.
“With security breaches dominating news headlines at an alarming rate, the Nokia Bell Labs 5G Secured Networks Certification Program brings a greater awareness to network susceptibility and safeguards, along with the means to address them,” said Sergio Fasce, Head of People Services at Nokia. “We are pleased to have partnered with our colleagues at Nokia Bell Labs to deliver a training program addressing arguably the most timely and impactful issue facing the communications industry today.”
Over the last 15 years, Nokia has completed more than 500 security projects throughout the world, and it is a member of more than five standardization groups that shape the newest security standards and best practices. It is also a major player in granted essential 5G patents, with over 3,500 patent families designated as necessary for 5G.
