Are you aware of the new ban on select Chinese security cameras?
On December 6, Maryland announced an emergency directive to prohibit China and Russia based products and platforms in state government.
While only state agencies are required to remove these products from state networks, implement measures to prevent installation of these products, and implement network-based restrictions, we encourage all Maryland based companies to proactively rethink their security camera providers this year.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has also banned the import or sale of Chinese telecoms and video surveillance products across the United States through the Secure Equipment Act. This includes the following Chinese suppliers:
- Hytera Communications
This ban applies to equipment designed 'for the purpose of public safety, security of government facilities, physical security surveillance of critical infrastructure, and other national security purposes'. This includes Huawei brand cameras and many other common brands that are powered by Huawei's HiSilicon chipset.
These entities present an unacceptable level of cybersecurity risk, and may be involved in activities such as cyber-espionage, surveillance of government entities, and inappropriate collection of sensitive personal information.
Don’t let your security efforts fall into the wrong hands.
