The sale of the country’s largest microchip factory to a Chinese -owned firm poses a bigger risk to Britain’s strategic interests than Huawei ’s involvement in the 5G network, the UK ’s former cybersecurity chief warns. Ciaran Martin, the former head of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), said the It comes several months after it was announced that the Wafer Fab plant, the largest producer of semiconductors in the UK , would be sold to Nexperia, which is headquartered in the Netherlands and owned by the Chinese firm Wingtech Technology.

The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America’s technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources. These servers were assembled for Elemental by Super Micro Computer Inc., a San Jose-based company (commonly known as Supermicro) that’s also one of the world’s biggest suppliers of server motherboards, the fiberglass-mounted clusters of chips and capacitors that act as the neurons of data centers large and small.

America's top cyber -security official has warned that the Trump administration has not given up on its fight to stop the UK using Huawei for its 5G networks. Robert Strayer, the US deputy assistant secretary for cyber and communications, said he did not believe the government's decision to give the Chinese firm limited access was final. "Our understanding is that there might have been some initial decisions made but conversations are continuing," he told the BBC. Mr Strayer warned again that allowing Huawei in would threaten intelligence sharing between the US and UK .

Russian director Nikita Mikhalkov claims billionaire Bill Gates might be seeking to implant humanity with microchips under the guise of vaccination, seeking to control people and ultimately “solve” overpopulation.

Ciaran Martin, who was chief executive of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) until August, said the future of microchip supply was a “first order strategic issue” for the country.

Mr Martin was in charge of NCSC when it changed its security assessment of equipment made by Huawei last year, ultimately excluding the firm from the UK’s 5G rollout on security grounds.

He told the Telegraph: “Huawei in the periphery of 5G only really mattered because the Trump administration became obsessed with it for reasons they never convincingly set out.

“By contrast the future of semiconductor supply is a first order strategic issue. It goes to the heart of how we should be dealing with China.”

It comes after the influential Commons Foreign Affairs Committee (FAC) said the UK’s “sovereignty should not be for sale” as they called for tougher action to prevent strategically important companies being sold overseas.

The cross-party report earlier this month called for the takeover of Newport Wafer Fab to be formally called in for review, with the Government imposing “appropriate mitigation measures”.

Committee chairman Tom Tugendhat said at the time: “Our fiercest competitors, notably China, have a track record of using foreign investments to gain access to important technologies and information.

“We’ve witnessed too many of our country’s brilliant tech firms disappear abroad with potentially significant economic and foreign policy implications.”
