GSMA’s Network Equipment Security Assurance Scheme (NESAS) is a security assurance framework that audits and tests network equipment vendors and their products against security baselines. The scheme encourages a secure-by-design culture and conformance demonstrates the ability of vendors to meet and maintain rigorous security levels. Learn how NESAS can meet national security needs, how it is evolving in line with regulatory developments and how it can be leveraged to increase the security and resilience of mobile networks.


Mobile devices increasingly store and execute sensitive data and applications. Consumer research has highlighted the importance of privacy and security to mobile users but there is currently no useful information sources to inform users about the relative security characteristics of individual device models. Find out how GSMA is planning to develop a programme to test, certify and publish device security levels to increase transparency and help users make informed purchasing decisions.
