The NCSC launched a new review to see what impact these new restrictions could have on Huawei's role as a supplier to UK networks, with a key concern being that the Chinese company would have to find new chip technologies and suppliers that could increase the risk of using its technology. It is this review that will help ministers make today's decision, effectively shifting the debate away from Huawei's existing security (which has itself been criticised) to questions about how secure it's technology will be in the future. … [Read more...] about Huawei, 5G networks and security: How did we end up here?
