CSIS director warns of state-sponsored espionage threat to 5G networks

Canada’s top spy used his first public speech to warn of increasing state-sponsored espionage through technology such as next-generation 5G mobile networks.

Canadian Security Intelligence Service director David Vigneault’s comments come as three of the country’s Five Eyes intelligence-sharing allies have barred wireless carriers from installing equipment made by China’s Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. in the 5G infrastructure they are building to provide an even-more-connected network for smartphone users.

…The CSIS director’s warnings come as the United States has mounted an intense campaign to convince Canada and other members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance to bar Huawei from being involved in 5G mobile technology and software.

Canada and Britain have so far resisted the U.S. lobbying campaign and risk facing restrictions on what sensitive intelligence from allies is shared with them.

Justin bends over for any tyranny, it’s in his blood. His handlers like the idea of siding with China.
