Cybersecurity, Surveillance & Data Mining

When people first start to learn about 5G, first they are often concerned about the potential dangers related to safety, health, and the welfare of the planet. Upon further research, they discover that there are many more risks associated with this wireless technology, including, cyber-attacks (security), surveillance, data mining and control. All of these issues will become a reality that we will all have to deal with if the 5G grid goes up.

In the CNET article “5G Brings Up Questions of Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities”, FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, makes the following statement:

“For all of the opportunities that 5G will unlock, it will also create new challenges,” Pai said. “When 5G is embedded in almost every aspect of our society and economy, from businesses to homes, hospitals to transportation networks, manufacturing to the electrical grid, that means securing our networks will become much more important, and much more difficult.”

To provide some context, Mr. Pai is a former lawyer for Verizon and is now the Chairman of the FCC, regulating the industry for which he used to work.  He is pushing the 5G wireless rollout forward without safety studies, while also telling the public that securing our networks will be more difficult with 5G.  When considering that the FCC is tasked to regulate communications and public safety, it is concerning that the FCC is condoning the rapid deployment of 5G without any assertions that networks will be secure or that 5G wireless radiation levels are safe for the public on a daily basis. It’s easy to imagine the problems that may arise once things like our electrical grid, medical devices, and security systems are connected to a vulnerable and unsafe network.

If the security risks don’t grab your attention, perhaps the incredibly outdated FCC wireless radiation guidelines (based on 2G technology) that are still in place to “protect” the general public may be of interest.  Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has become one of the leading voices pushing back against the deployment of 5G and is currently suing the FCC for not updating its guidelines since 1996 or 25 years ago

In the next few years, we can expect to see billions of devices that will connect to the 5G grid as the Internet of Things continues to be forced on us.  The manufacturers of these devices do not have foolproof ways to keep us safe, yet no one is holding them accountable.

Please refer to the following videos and articles that expose the security vulnerabilities we are currently experiencing with wireless technology. If we are already having cybersecurity issues, what will 5G bring? 5G is intended to digitize education, healthcare, utilities and transportation and there are no assurances that 5G connections will be secure, raising alarming questions regarding public safety and cybersecurity.

So, what can you do?

#1 –  If you live in Illinois, join our email list. Stay informed and get involved in the community where you live.

#2 Share our website and help us get this information out there!  People need to wake up to what is going on and come together to stop it. 

#3 –  STOP spending money on devices, electronics, and appliances that support wireless 4G/5G technology!  I know we all need laptops and phones, but, for example, do you really need the little vacuum that drives around your house all day making your poor cat nuts while it cleans your floors?.  If you can live without it, then don’t buy it. Spending money on these devices sends the message to companies that we are just fine with 5G cells going up in our front yards. 

Positive change will come if we pull together to work with our government officials as our  grassroots movement continues to grow.   We can do this!
