TIA Panel Discussion: NFV Security Vulnerabilities: Why Worry?

The fast-paced transition to NFV promises more agility and scalability with less time and less cost. But these architectures are highly distributed, must interwork with existing physical networks, and contain the heavy use of Open Source products. In a world where attacks on our security, both at the individual and national level, are the norm, should we be worried that NFV opens us up to untested vulnerabilities? Or does this new technology provide an opportunity to improve our security capabilities? This panel of experts from companies participating in TIA's NFV Security Working Group will discuss the risks and options for moving forward.
