Ford Motor Company is facing scrutiny for planning to contract technology from Chinese companies with ties to the Chinese government and military, as well as the North Korean government.

The companies in question are involved in Ford’s agreements with a Chinese electric vehicle battery manufacturer and will play a significant role in the proposed U.S. battery facility’s design, construction, and IT processes.

Lawmakers have raised concerns about the cybersecurity risks and potential exploitation of data flows associated with these partnerships, urging the U.S. government to investigate the companies’ connections to the Chinese military, Communist Party, and North Korean government.

Rep. Mike Gallagher and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers wrote, “It is unconscionable for Ford to purchase critical IT infrastructure from a Chinese company that facilitate sanctions evasion activity on behalf of the North Korean government.”

“Indeed, this poses significant cybersecurity risks, including the potential for malicious actors to exploit the very connections and data flows iPaaS tools are designed to facilitate. The same company that is supplying IT products and software to entities that support the North Korean government will have the capability to embed backdoors, spyware, and other forms of malware within Ford’s iPaaS infrastructure, which could compromise the confidentiality and integrity of Ford’s sensitive information,” continued the lawmakers.
