Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre: Oversight Board annual report 2015

This is the first annual report for the National Security Adviser from the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) Oversight Board.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



The HCSEC facility in Banbury, Oxfordshire, belongs to Huawei Technologies (UK) Co Ltd. The Oversight Board has now completed its first full year of work and has covered a number of areas of HCSEC’s work over the course of the year 2014 to 2015.

The Oversight Board concludes that in the year 2014 to 2015 HCSEC fulfilled its obligations to provide assurance that any risks to UK national security from Huawei’s involvement in the UK’s critical networks have been sufficiently mitigated.
