The European Union introduced a broad strategy to ensure its future 5G networks are secure from cyber threats, but stopped short of meeting US demands for a ban on equipment made by Huawei Technologies Co., said Bloomberg.
“We’re not talking about bans today, what we’re talking about is a process that will be based on a thorough analysis of the risks and vulnerabilities,” European Security Commissioner Julian King said at a press conference in Strasbourg, France.
The EU gave member states until July 15 to report back after carrying out risk assessments of 5G network infrastructure in their individual countries.
By the end of December, the countries will need to collectively agree on EU-wide measures, such as certification requirements and tests for identifying suppliers considered “non-secure.” Countries retain the right to ban companies from their markets for national security reasons.
