What is the deal with Huawei and why is everyone upset?
The Government is committed to ensuring that the UK seizes the chance to be a world leader in 5G.
The Government asked the Future Communications Challenge Group (FCCG) of senior academics, industry experts and investors to give it’s views on driving forward its commitment in this area. The Interim report has now been published.
The fifth annual report for the Cabinet Secretary from the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre Oversight Board has now been published.
All these reports are very extensive and cover a lot of ground, so what is the deal?
It appears that "the idea" of a company that is state controlled by the Chinese should not have the type of access to the areas of security as HCSEC [Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre] is going to have and it has left the establishment feeling very uneasy for the future of the country, even though no one can put a finger on any specific action that may result from the union.
