I receive regular updates from the National Cyber Security Centre on the security of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure and hold regular discussions with other Ministers on these matters.

The Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) operates under a set of arrangements between Huawei and Government to mitigate any potential risks arising from the involvement of Huawei in parts of the UK’s critical national infrastructure. The latest findings and recommendations from HCSEC can be found in their 2018 Oversight Board report:
