A Huawei recently opened its largest Global Cyber Security Transparency and Privacy Protection Center in Dongguan, China, with speeches from representatives of the GSMA, SUSE, British Standards Institution and regulators from the UAE and Indonesia at the opening ceremony.
Along with the opening of the new center, Huawei also launched its Product Cyber Security Baseline, marking the first time that the company made available to the sector as a whole its basic product safety structure and management practices. These actions are part of the company's broader efforts to engage customers, suppliers, standards organizations and other stakeholders to jointly strengthen cybersecurity across the sector.
“Cybersecurity has never been more important,” said Ken Hu, Huawei's Rotating President, at the opening of the Dongguan center. “As the sector, we need to work together, share best practices and build our collective capabilities in governance, standards, technology and verification. We need to give the general public and regulators a reason to trust the safety of the products and services they use every day. Together, we can find the right balance between security and development in an increasingly digital world.”
In recent years, the industry's digital transformation and new technologies such as 5G and AI have made cyberspace more complex than ever, which has been exacerbated by the fact that people have been spending most of their lives online during the pandemic. of COVID-19. These trends have led to an increase in new cybersecurity risks.
Huawei opened the new Global Cyber Security Transparency and Privacy Protection Center in Dongguan to address these issues, provide a platform for industry stakeholders to share their cyber governance expertise and work together on technical solutions. The center is designed to demonstrate solutions and share experiences, facilitate communication and joint innovation, and support security testing and verification. It will be open to regulators, independent third-party testing organizations and standards organizations, as well as Huawei's customers, partners and suppliers.
“This is the first time we've shared our core security framework with the entire industry, not just major vendors,” said Sean Yang, Director of Huawei's Global Office of Cyber Security and Privacy Protection. “We want to invite all stakeholders, including customers, regulators, standards organizations, technology providers and testing organizations, to join us in discussing and working on cybersecurity baselines. Together, we can continuously improve product safety across the sector.”
