    Title: The Exploding Wireless Attack Surface: Policy considerations for a rapidly changing electromagnetic spectrum environment

    Description: Examine current and emerging cybersecurity policy issues introduced by the proliferation of new spectrum uses, many of which are not emphasizing cybersecurity. Billions are being spent for rural broadband; IoT/IIoT systems are becoming ubiquitous and many have RF component embedded; LEO internet will expand dramatically with ground, space and data link segments; MMW systems for 5G and 6G need to be backwards compatible with legacy systems; the military is putting increased emphasis on cyber-EW convergence and the implementing the 2020 Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority Strategy; shared spectrum is becoming increasingly accepted, increasing the importance of dynamic spectrum access. Spectrum is critical to nearly every element of the emerging network environment, yet the initiatives are distributed (NTIA, FCC, Agriculture, Energy, Defense, States, commercial, etc.) and cybersecurity considerations are not receiving enough attention.
