Huawei Achieves UK Government Cyber Essentials Plus Certification
[London, U.K., April 12, 2018] Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has today announced it has achieved Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
The Cyber Essentials scheme, which was launched by the UK Government in 2014 and is part of the Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy, involves an independent assessment of security controls that businesses need to have in place to mitigate risks from common cyber threats. By taking part in this Cyber Essential assessment, organisations are able to demonstrate to customers and partners that they have taken vital precautions to combat today’s internet-borne threats.
“In today’s digital world, businesses are under enormous pressure to not only protect their organisations, but also demonstrate how secure they are,” said Ian Glover, President of CREST-accredited certification body for the UK Government Cyber Essentials Scheme, “This scheme is a great example of how organisations can do just that and can give consumers peace of mind that both business and government have defences in place to combat modern day threats.”
John Suffolk, Senior Vice President and the Global Cyber Security & Privacy Officer of Huawei, said: “This Government-endorsed standard is a fantastic opportunity to help improve cyber resilience in the UK and we are pleased to support it and to have achieved the Cyber Essentials Plus certificate. As an ICT leader, Huawei is focused on protecting its customers from today’s cyber threats and we are committed to working with the Government, industry and academia to play our part in improving UK cyber protection.”
Huawei recognizes and follows the international regulations and practices on information security and the announcement of Cyber Essentials Plus certification, complements Huawei’s existing ISO 27001 certification.
