British intelligence says Huawei risk manageable - Financial Times

British intelligence says Huawei risk manageable - Financial Times

But a source told the Financial Times the conclusion reached by British officials was likely to embolden European countries to follow its lead and defy America.

With concerns about Chinese spying, the U.S. has been embarked on a campaign to prevent Huawei from operating in the country. Australia and NZ have actually banned Huawei from contributing to their 5G network, and the United States has got a whole legal beef going on with the company.

Wark pointed to Huawei's history of fostering technological innovation in Canada and supplying quality gear to major telecommunications providers as reasons to assess the security risks on rational, technical grounds.

The office of British Prime Minister Theresa May said the government is still reviewing its policies on the safety of 5G networks, and that "no decisions have been taken".

Ericsson AB chief executive officer Borje Ekholm pushed back on notions that restrictions on Chinese competitor Huawei Technologies would deprive European operators of the only vendor capable of delivering equipment for next-generation wireless networks and risk delaying 5G development on the continent.

Huawei has denied accusations that it facilitates Chinese spying.

Even Oxford University has cut ties with the company in recent months.

Robert Hannigan, former head of the Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ), the United Kingdom signals intelligence agency, recently wrote in the FT that blanket bans on Chinese tech companies like Huawei make no sense.

A spokesman said: 'As was made clear in July's HCSEC (Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre) oversight board, the NCSC has concerns around Huawei's engineering and security capabilities.

The U.S. lacks a leading corporate player in the 5G supplier game, fuelling suggestions that Washington's drumbeat of fear is propelled by commercial worries as much as security and legal concerns.

He said that NCSC had "never found evidence of malicious Chinese state cyber activity through Huawei" and that any "assertions that any Chinese technology in any part of a 5G network represents an unacceptable risk are nonsense".

'We have set out the improvements we expect the company to make.
