Should we fear Huawei?

Should we fear Huawei?

Why has the US banned the use of Chinese company Huawei’s technology? To what extent is Huawei a security threat? What are the deeper issues at play in this power struggle?

These are questions we’ll be exploring on this week’s teissPodcast.

Malcolm Taylor, Head of Cyber Security at ITC Secure Networking, joins me to discuss what’s really at the root of tensions between the US, UK and China in the battle over the use of Huawei 5G technology. We also talk about the wider issues of surveillance and data privacy. What’s a surveillance state? What type surveillance is OK and what is not? What would George Orwell make of all this?
