Huawei hires former U.S. defense contractor official

“Huawei Technologies, the world’s second-largest vendor of telecommunications equipment, has hired a former U.S. defense contractor official as its chief security officer as it tries to counter perceptions that the China-based firm is trying to insert its technology into U.S. systems on behalf of Chinese intelligence services.

Donald ‘Andy’ Purdy, the former chief cybersecurity strategist for Falls Church-based CSC, began his new job Tuesday. The move comes as Congress is conducting an investigation into alleged links between Huawei and the Chinese government. “
