NHK reported this afternoon that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga indicated at a news conference this morning that while government offices are being asked to take security risks into consideration in IT equipment procurement from next fiscal year in order to prevent information leakage through cyberattacks, the GOJ has no plans to ask private companies involved in the construction of important infrastructure to do the same. NHK noted that while the government has not cited any particular company for exclusion, Chinese companies like Huawei will effectively be barred in light of the Trump administration’s ban on the use of Huawei products in the U.S. government.
