Huawei requests Czech cyber-security watchdog to withdraw warning

Monday 11 February 2019 | 11:51 CET | News

Huawei has requested that the Czech Cyber and Information Security Office, NUKIB, should withdraw its warning about potential security risks associated with the company's systems, reports Denik N. Otherwise, Huawei is ready to take legal steps and seek remedy with international arbitration. The Chinese manufacturer has sent a letter to the Czech Governement and to NUKIB and expects a reply by 14 February.

Huawei objects to several aspects of the NUKIB warning, in which the security watchdog recommended that the network administrator thoroughly review the use of Huawei's telecommunication systems for security reasons. 

Huawei complains that the NUKIB warning causes a competitive disadvantage and the company considers it discriminatory. It argues that there are no grounds for doubts about security or any suspected spying for China. NUKIB did not justify its warning and it only contains indications and conditional statements from which NUKIB deduced the existence of a threat, but without any factual analysis, the company said.
