The Federal Communications Commission has just prohibited Chinese telecom and video surveillance equipment that poses a risk to national security from being authorized for sale or importation into the U.S.

  • There are two types of risks of the banned equipment, cybersecurity and economic, according to Jack Corrigan, research analyst at Georgetown’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology.
  • The FCC ban applies to future sales and authorizations, meaning there is equipment on the market that was previously authorized and is still legal to buy and sell, though this equipment presents security risks, Corrigan said.
  • The FCC has also stated it would like to ban the app TikTok.
