How great a threat does Huawei really pose to the UK’s cybersecurity?

With the announcement that Huawei equipment is to be removed from the UK’s 5G networks by 2027, questions have been raised over just how much of a threat the Chinese telecoms behemoth poses to the integrity of the nation’s cybersecurity.

The news of a ban signifies a U-turn by Boris Johnson and his government which said in January that Huawei would be allowed to play a “limited role” in the UK’s 5G infrastructure.

Oliver Dowden, the UK culture secretary, said that no new Huawei 5G equipment can be bought after 31 December this year, but older 2G, 3G, and 4G can stay in place until it is no longer needed.

For most organisations, Active Directory (AD) is the key to identity and access management, which means it is vital that it stays operational and secure. Unfortunately, AD faces a surplus of risks every single day. Whether from ever-frequent cyber and ransomware attacks or critical misconfigurations, effective AD cybersecurity risk management can be a daunting endeavour.

Join us for this FREE live webinar on 14 June, where we'll discuss the threats and potential risks you face in your AD environment. See for yourself how to measure AD risk using a risk register (5x5) as well as learn ways you can mitigate those risks to ensure true cyber resilience.
