SMH of 9: Chinese Chips: New DOJ Policies for Prosecution of Entities and the Individuals Within Them Most Responsible 

Under Chinese law, companies in China “must support, co-operate with and collaborate in national-intelligence work” as requested by Beijing, and security experts in the United States and Canada warn that equipment produced by firms such as Huawei could be compromised on behalf of China’s ruling party.

Australia no longer isolated as 'Five Eyes' turn on Huawei

John McDuling

The Wall Street Journal U.S. allies from Australia to Japan to the European Union raised new security questions about Huawei Technologies Co. on Friday, putting fresh pressure on the Chinese telecommunications giant. The head of Australia’s top military cyber defense agency, Mike Burgess, said Chinese companies were blocked from the rollout of 5G mobile-phone capabilities in August because the new technology would underpin not only communications, but also critical infrastructure that could be brought down in a cyberattack. That makes the technology more strategically important than previous innovations, he said. “If the 5G network of the future isn’t there, there’s a good chance electricity supply might be interrupted, water supply might be interrupted, the financial sector or elements of it might be impacted,” said Mr. Burgess, the head of the Australian Signals Directorate, in a rare television interview. “That’s why it was important to get security right at the start. It was a foundational issue.”

New DOJ Policies for Prosecution of Entities and the Individuals Within Them Most Responsible 

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced yesterday important changes to Government policy on prosecuting corporations and individuals yesterday at a conference on the FCPA.  See DOJ announcement here.  I include below the key excerpts (lengthy) explaining the policy:
Under our revised policy, pursuing individuals responsible for wrongdoing will be a top priority in every corporate investigation. 
It is important to impose penalties on corporations that engage in misconduct. Cases against corporate entities allow us to recover fraudulent proceeds, reimburse victims, and deter future wrongdoing. Corporate-level resolutions also allow us to reward effective compliance programs and penalize companies that condone or ignore wrongdoing.
