Questions We Asked:

18:00: Could China have had a hack on the scale of the Solar Winds hack? Would they put themselves in a position like the US did?

19:11: The Tik-Tok spat, is that trend going to continue in 2021 and onwards?

21:25: Does China allow third Party Auditors into the country from a western country. For example, if I set up shop in a Chinese city and wanted to perform a Penetration Test or some security audit, can I Invite that third party to perform an audit, or is everything tightly controlled?

23:12: What’s your prediction with Huawei in the UK? I know that Boris Johnstone was in favour to use Huawei as the 5G provider of choice. Is that relationship now finished? Is it done and dusted?
