techUK comments on the Telecommunications Security Bill
techUK CEO Julian David yesterday responded to the Government's announcement of new telecoms security law.
The government yesterday published the Telecommunications (Security) Bill, which aims to give the government unprecedented new powers to boost the security standards of the UK's telecoms networks and remove the threat of high risk vendors. On the publication of the Bill, CEO of techUK, Julian David yesterday said:
"Gigabit connectivity is an essential driver of a levelled up economic recovery. We support the Government’s drive to strengthen security and maintain trust in our telecoms networks.
Government has promised an accompanying Diversification Strategy to expand the number of vendors available in the UK. It must deliver on this promise with a strategy that is ambitious, fully funded and maximises opportunities for UK companies in areas such as software, small cells and semiconductors."
