“Supply chain security” has been a hot topic in Congress and federal agencies in recent months.  There is concern among policymakers that the use of Chinese telecommunications equipment in U.S. networks and connected devices could pose security risks. Clete Johnson (Wilkinson Barker Knauer), Nova Daly (Wiley Rein), and Sarah Geffroy (AT&T) join us to share their thoughts on these concerns.  They also discuss the general role of Chinese equipment in the U.S. technology sector and the effect of banning sales to the U.S. public sector of such equipment on the U.S. and global economies.
