Huawei investigates Huawei investigators and finds no evil
Chinese equipment supplier Huawei has been facing fears in the UK over exactly how secure their gear really is. To assuage these fears the company created the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) in Oxfordshire back in 2010. The tricky part is, many of the employees and officers of the HCSEC are also Huawei employees.
It doesn’t take a genius to question whether Huawei is the right entity to determine if Huawei products pose a threat. And so, in an attempt to legitimize the HCSEC Huawei created the HCSEC Oversight Board – again, with Huawei employees in place.
