Chinese multinational technology company Huawei has been suspended from a membership to an exclusive forum designed to tackle security breaches. The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams, otherwise known as FIRST, confirmed that the company will not be involved. Executive Director Chris Gibson said: “After extensive consultation and review, we regret ending up in a position where we had to suspend Huawei’s membership in order to ensure we meet these evolving regulations, and we intend to work closely with both Huawei and the Bureau of Industry and Security to address any concerns related to their participation in FIRST.”
