Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable, discusses new cybersecurity executive orders, and the impact they have on industry.

Two new cybersecurity executive orders were implemented last week. One aims to bolster the government’s cyber workforce, the other to improve supply chain security. Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable, says that with the rollout of 5G networks, securing the infrastructure behind them is more important than ever.


“The long term of benefits of 5G is that it’s going to create spaces where devices interact with each other. That means that you’re going to have this mesh where you will have devices that today don’t interact with each other that much or do so through certain complicated networks directly interact with each other,” Schwartz said. “That means, from the point of view from the national security folks, that you have to worry about what is going to be passed…  We’ll get a lot of economic benefit from that, a lot of potential for new technology and innovation out of that. But it also comes with security risks.”
