Increased Scrutiny in Procurement of Network Equipment in the UK

The Chinese telecommunications company Huawei is under scrutiny around the globe over concerns that its close ties with the Chinese government present national security threats to the U.S, Europe and allied countries. Although this article focuses on Huawei, CCTV companies should also look at other Chinese technology companies such as Hikvision, who are also under threat of sanction from the US government.
