Dahua Ban Response: NOT Chinese Government Owned

By: John Honovich, Published on Aug 08, 2018

Dahua has responded to the US Congress passing a US government ban on Dahua and Hikvision's products. While Dahua offered the now standard cybersecurity defense, it led with an interesting and direct assertion, that Dahua is "not a government-owned entity."

That is a true statement, from our research. How much does this help them and how can they position themselves vis a vis Chinese government-owned Hikvision?
