Nokia launches new 5G certification program aimed at network security

New course addresses the challenges faced by all industries, governments, and individuals in securing 5G systems

Nokia has launched a new professional level 5G course and certification aimed at network security. The Nokia Bell Labs 5G Secured Networks course is part of Nokia’s program to train and certify industry professionals on 5G technology, from network access to application management.

The newly launched Nokia Bell Labs 5G Secured Networks course addresses the vulnerabilities faced by all industries, governments and individuals to secure 5G systems. Given that 5G is becoming a key element of emerging mission-critical Industry 4.0 solutions, securing 5G networks has moved to the forefront as an industry imperative, for which comprehensive end-to-end solutions are needed.

Geert Van Wauwe, Chief Security Officer at Nokia, said:

“5G will empower new services and applications beyond our imagination. 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 8-hour web-based course, which can be completed at the learner’s own pace, covers the processes, tools, technologies and resources needed to implement an effective program that proactively prevents and resolves threats to network security.

Course participants will examine the role of 5G security in network, software and cloud environments, and they will apply an understanding of security threats, protections and potential responses through a series of real-world case study exercises.

The Nokia Bell Labs 5G Certification Program is a first-of-its-kind program that offers professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry two levels of certification – Associate and Professional – that deliver essential knowledge covering everything from the basics of 5G networks to professional level planning and design.

This course is the fourth of the Nokia Bell Labs 5G Professional Level Certification Program, and nearly 30,000 individuals across many industries have registered for 5G certification courses since its February 2020 launch.

Sergio Fasce, Head of People Services at Nokia, said:

“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. 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.”
