Rego toured Huawei's Shenzhen R&D Center, where he learned about the company's cyber security strategy. He also visited Huawei's manufacturing center, where he saw how Huawei applies cyber security to production and supply chain management.
Chen Lifang said, "It's my great honor to receive the delegation from the INCIBE. Your visit will further consolidate our partnership. We appreciate the Spanish government's openness, pragmatic and open attitude towards cooperation, and determination to address challenges. We are confident that with the broad range of cyber security matters covered by INCIBE, we will collaborate in a wider range of areas."
Miguel Rego said, "For INCIBE, it has been a privilege to have the opportunity to actually watch the ICT’s Future during the visit, thanks to the R&D investment efforts made by the company in the last 10 years. This visit shows that Huawei is undoubtedly at the forefront in cyber security assurance in supply chain and manufacturing. We have identified several joint working areas and we are convinced we are going to cooperate in a very successful way."
In February 2016, Huawei Spain and INCIBE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which included a commitment from both organizations to promote best practices and information exchanges concerning cyber security protection. Both organizations will also aim to increase users' cyber security awareness, thus improving cyber security capabilities and promoting their implementation and development.
The Spanish government is committed to openness and collaboration. Both organizations will work together to guarantee cyber security in an open and transparent manner and jointly face this global challenge. Huawei is a leading global supplier of ICT products and services, and operates in more than 170 countries and regions. Huawei collaborates and shares experience with international public organizations, companies, and users. As part of its commitment to ensuring cyber security, Huawei has joined many industry standards organizations, including 3GPP, ETSI, IETF, IEEE and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE). Huawei also sponsors initiatives such as the International Day of Information Society – ISMS Forum, a worldwide forum for cyber security experts.
In addition, Huawei has taken all possible measures to guarantee the security of its own operations, as well as the reliability of its networks and devices. In this regard, the company has established a consumer-focused, end-to-end global cyber security assurance system based on its own procedures, which integrates cyber security requirements into all its business processes. The company has made all necessary efforts to comply with EU laws and regulations on cyber security.
