Huawei cyber security chief says no operator gives it access to intercept equipment

LONDON (Reuters) – Huawei’s cyber security chief said on Friday that he was not aware of any mobile operator ever having given the Chinese company access to the equipment used to intercept calls when required to do so by security services.

United States officials told the Wall Street Journal this week that Huawei could covertly access communications using the equipment that networks were legally obliged to install to allow access by law enforcement services.

Huawei rejected the allegation.

“We have no access to this equipment, we don’t know what call or information is being intercepted, we don’t know when it is intercepted – all we do is provide one side of the box which is blind to what’s happening on the other side of the box,” John Suffolk told reporters.

Suffolk said Huawei did not make the equipment that network operators used to intercept communications if required, adding that the United States had not produced any evidence to support any of its allegations.

“We just say: ‘Don’t hide it, don’t be shy. Publish it, let the world see it’,” he said.

The official said Huawei’s equipment had to be connected, but he did not know how close it was to the “lawful intercept gateway”, which was often located in a special room because of the sensitivity.

“I’m not aware of any operator who has said to Huawei: ‘Come and sit in this room and see what’s going on’,” he said.

“If I found out that our staff were involved with such things, then we would take appropriate action on that.”

Suffolk said governments and operators were “smart”, and were supporting Huawei, which competes with Ericsson and Nokia in the telecoms equipment market.

He asked why, given the U.S. allegations, competitors were not growing at 30% or 40%.

“The faith of our customers, and you can see this in the results over the past 30 years, gives an indication of what our customers think of those allegations,” he said.

Google plans to move UK users‘ accounts outside EU jurisdiction

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google is planning to move its British users’ accounts out of the control of European Union privacy regulators, placing them under U.S. jurisdiction instead, the company confirmed late on Wednesday.

Reuters had reported the plans earlier on Wednesday, citing people familiar with them.

The shift, prompted by Britain’s exit from the EU, will leave the sensitive personal information of tens of millions with less protection and within easier reach of British law enforcement.

Alphabet Inc’s Google intends to require its British users to acknowledge new terms of service including the new jurisdiction, according to people familiar with the plans.

“Nothing about our services or our approach to privacy will change, including how we collect or process data, and how we respond to law enforcement demands for users’ information,” Google said in an emailed statement. “The protections of the UK GDPR will still apply to these users.”

A spokesman declined to answer questions.

Ireland, where Google and other U.S. tech companies have their European headquarters, is staying in the EU, which has one of the world’s most aggressive data protection rules, the General Data Protection Regulation.

Google has decided to move its British users out of Irish jurisdiction because it is unclear whether Britain will follow GDPR or adopt other rules that could affect the handling of user data, the people said.

If British Google users have their data kept in Ireland, it would be more difficult for British authorities to recover it in criminal investigations.

The recent Cloud Act in the United States, however, is expected to make it easier for British authorities to obtain data from U.S. companies. Britain and the United States are also on track to negotiate a broader trade agreement.

Beyond that, the United States has among the weakest privacy protections of any major economy, with no broad law despite years of advocacy by consumer protection groups.

Google has amassed one of the largest stores of information about people on the planet, using the data to tailor services and sell advertising.

Google could also have had British accounts answer to a British subsidiary, but has opted not to, the people said.

Lea Kissner, Google’s former lead for global privacy technology, said she would have been surprised if the company had kept British accounts controlled in an EU country with the United Kingdom no longer a member.

“There’s a bunch of noise about the U.K. government possibly trading away enough data protection to lose adequacy under GDPR, at which point having them in Google Ireland’s scope sounds super-messy,” Kissner said.

“Never discount the desire of tech companies not be caught in between two different governments.”

In coming months, other U.S. tech companies will have to make similar choices, according to people involved in internal discussions elsewhere.

Facebook, which has a similar set-up to Google, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

ING-Chef Ralph Hamers löst Sergio Ermotti als UBS-CEO ab

tsm. / (sda/dpa) Sergio Ermotti gibt seinen Posten als Chef der UBS auf. Der Tessiner tritt per Oktober 2020 zurück. Entsprechende Medienberichte bestätigte die Grossbank in einer Mitteilung. Nach beinahe einem Jahrzehnt als CEO der UBS sei es für ihn Zeit ein neues Kapitel aufzuschlagen, sagte Ermotti in der Nacht zum Donnerstag.

Ermottis Nachfolger wird Ralph Hamers, derzeit CEO der holländischen Retailbank ING. Er tritt zum 1. November 2020 als neuer Group Chief Executive an. Bereits ab 1. September soll Hamers als Mitglied der Konzernleitung zu UBS stossen, um einen reibungslosen Übergang in der Führung sicherzustellen, meldet die UBS in einer Medienmitteilung.

UBS-Verwaltungsratspräsident Axel Weber war laut einer Meldung der «Financial Times» bereits vor Monaten an Hamers herangetreten – denn schon damals sei klar gewesen, dass Ermottis Vertrag nicht verlängert werde. Hamers ist laut UBS seit 1991 für die ING Group tätig und seit 2013 deren Chef.

Weber sagte über Hamers in der UBS-Medienmitteilung, dieser sei «der richtige CEO, um unsere Bank durch die nächste Phase ihrer Entwicklung zu führen.» Er sei ein erfahrener und sehr respektierter Branchenkenner mit einer ausgewiesenen Expertise in der digitalen Transformation.

Der Verwaltungsrat dankte ausserdem Sergio Ermotti «für seinen ausserordentlichen Einsatz und Beitrag, den er über die vergangenen neun Jahre, in denen er als CEO tätig war, zum Erfolg der Bank geleistet hat.»

DAX Chartanalyse: DOW DAX es ist spannend

Veröffentlicht

Man kann das Gefühl bekommen, der DAX könnte nicht mehr fallen. Bis jetzt konnte er nicht steigen. Wie auch immer, Charttechnik zeigt wo wir uns gerade befinden und da wird es spannend.
Schliesslich haben wir von 13000 bereits einen starken Anstieg gesehen, der sich dann wiederholen müsste, bzw. weitergeführt wird. Charts: DAX-Tageschart, DAX-Wochenchart, DOW-Wochenchart.

Da es sich hier um einen Tageschart handelt, kann man in dieser Form, immer nur eine Momentaufnahme vom DAX zeigen. Darum muss jeder die Trendlinien selber weiter zeichnen und beobachten, wo sich
die Widerstände am nächsten Tag befinden.

Wichtig ist, sich nicht nur an Charttechnik zu orientieren, sondern auch Indikatoren eines Handelssystems zu verwenden, da die emotionslos die Richtung anzeigen und sich nicht wie der Mensch
beeinflussen lassen.
