Mobile network providers must have taken additional measures by October 2022 to secure their systems against espionage or misuse. This is stated in a regulation by State Secretary Keijzer of Economic Affairs, who will be consulted today.
There have been concerns about the security of mobile networks for some time, especially about the role that the Chinese equipment supplier Huawei plays in this. It is suspected that the Chinese engage in espionage through that company.
KPN, T-Mobile and Vodafone are now imposed additional requirements by the cabinet in five areas. For example, they must include and monitor strict security requirements in their contracts with suppliers. People who have access to the systems must be structurally screened. Their background must also be checked.
The cabinet also has the option of prohibiting telecom providers from working with certain suppliers for crucial parts of their network. Such a decision can be imposed if the supplier has close ties with a foreign government or intelligence services.
