Telecoms security bill may exclude Huawei from Estonian market, firm says

On the face of it Huawei have a valid objection about the impact of this bill on cyber security though I suspect the bill is much more a political positioning statement than an evidence-based attempt to improve security…:

[…] The Company objects to the 120-working day consultation period which would precede the introduction of hardware and software on all communications networks, and claims this does not allow the network operator to ensure the resilience and security of its communications networks and thus negatively affects national security by preventing a rapid response.

Huawei also believes that the bill ignores legal developments in cyber security and telecommunications in the EU. The transitional period of six months preceding the entry into force of the Regulation is not sufficient either, the company says.
