Huawei Opens Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Transparency Center
Huawei opened its largest Global Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Transparency Center in Dongguan, China. The company also released its Product Security Baseline, marking the first time they made product security baseline framework and management practices available to the industry as a whole. These actions are part of the company's broader efforts to engage with customers, suppliers, standards organizations, and other stakeholders to jointly strengthen cyber security across the industry.
"Cyber security is more important than ever," said Ken Hu, Huawei's Rotating Chairman, at the opening of the Dongguan center. "As an industry, we need to work together, share best practices, and build our collective capabilities in governance, standards, technology, and verification. We need to give both the general public and regulators a reason to trust in the security of the products and services they use on a daily basis. Together, we can strike the right balance between security and development in an increasingly digital world."
Over the past few years, industry digitalization and new technologies like 5G and AI have made cyberspace more complex than ever. These trends have led to a rise in new cyber security risks. Huawei opened the new center to address these issues, providing a platform for industry stakeholders to share expertise in cyber governance and work on technical solutions together. The center is designed to demonstrate solutions and share experience, 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 customers, partners, and suppliers.
At the event, Huawei also released its Product Security Baseline, the culmination of over a decade of experience in product security management, incorporating a broad range of external regulations, technical standards, and regulatory requirements. The Baseline, together with Huawei's other governance mechanisms, helps ensure the quality, security, and trustworthiness of the company's products. Over the years, the company has built over 1,500 networks that connect more than three billion people across 170 countries and regions. None of these networks have ever experienced a major security incident.
"Cybersecurity risk is a shared responsibility," concluded Ken Hu in his opening remarks. "Governments, standards organizations, and technology providers need to work closer together to develop a unified understanding of cyber security challenges. This must be an international effort. We need to set shared goals, align responsibilities, and work together to build a trustworthy digital environment that meets the challenges of today and tomorrow."
