Cybersecurity Concerns over US Ports’ Safety: Shanghai Zhenhua Refutes Claims- Upholds Commitment to Safety

ZPMC and ABB Address Cybersecurity Concerns in U.S. Ports

Navigating International Tech Partnerships Amid Rising U.S.-China Cybersecurity Concerns

According to China News, Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries, or ZPMC, strongly said they’re not causing any cybersecurity issues with their cranes in U.S. ports. The U.S. Congress was worried about ZPMC working with a Swiss company called ABB on cranes for America. ZPMC, which is owned by China, replied, saying the cranes they provide don’t create any cybersecurity problems for U.S. ports and follow the rules everyone agrees on.

To deal with the U.S. Congress questions, ABB, the Swiss company, explained things. They sell equipment to different crane makers all over the world, including Chinese companies like ZPMC. These cranes are then sold straight to U.S. ports. This situation shows the tension between the U.S. and China, where both countries often accuse each other of cyberattacks and spying. It also shows how it’s hard to handle the computer security part when different countries work together on important projects.
