RWR Launches Huawei Risk Tracker Tool

Over the past two decades, the emer­gence of Huawei onto the inter­na­tion­al scene has been accom­pa­nied by a steady stream of report­ed risk events that have each played impor­tant parts in shap­ing the cur­rent atmos­phere of risk, threat and busi­ness con­cern over choos­ing the com­pa­ny as a part­ner. These risk events go well beyond dec­la­ra­tions by the U.S. gov­ern­ment — or oth­er gov­ern­ments — of the com­pa­ny’s alleged cul­pa­bil­i­ty. They also go beyond sim­ple requests from the U.S. gov­ern­ment to trust them that the risk is real. The real­i­ty is that there is a rather long list of exam­ples of Huawei rais­ing a vari­ety of risk con­cerns for their part­ners in the con­text of actu­al busi­ness deals that range from espi­onage to intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty theft to gen­er­al con­cern about the ethics of the com­pa­ny on issues rang­ing from trans­paren­cy to cor­rup­tion.

To see the full, trans­ac­tion­al his­to­ry of Huawei’s risk events, RWR has launched its Huawei Risk Track­er tool that pro­vides visu­als and research which demon­strate just how con­sis­tent and long-run­ning has been Huawei’s track record of alleged abus­es across these var­i­ous cat­e­gories. To our knowl­edge, it is the most com­pre­hen­sive resource of its kind, much of it drawn from RWR’s Intel­Trak sub­scrip­tion tool, which has cat­a­logued Chi­nese busi­ness trans­ac­tions glob­al­ly — as well as their relat­ed risk fac­tors — on a dai­ly basis since 2012.
