Developing Secure and Trustworthy Products and Services to Help Customers Improve Cyber Resilience
[Shenzhen, China, April 14, 2021] Huawei held a Cyber Security Forum within the framework of the Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen. At the event, Huawei security experts delivered a keynote on "Developing secure and trustworthy products and services to help customers improve cyber resilience". Together with global analysts and customers, they discussed how to proactively address cyber security and privacy protection challenges as the world goes digital.
Dai Libin, senior expert of Huawei GSPO Office, noted that amid today's increasingly complex network technologies and businesses, addressing cyber security issues does not depend on the country of origin or production site of technologies, but on the nature of the technology per se. We can achieve cyber security through secure and trustworthy product design, constant testing based on unified standards, along with effective management. Meanwhile, governments, communication network operator, vendors, and other stakeholders should strengthen cooperation and coordination to maintain a fair and non-discriminatory policy environment. In the cyber security field, Huawei is constantly optimizing our end-to-end assurance system, while developing secure and trustworthy products and services to help customers improve cyber resilience. Huawei looks forward to collaborating with stakeholders through openness, transparency, cooperation, and innovation.
Duan Hao, Head of Huawei 5G E2E Cybersecurity Solution Marketing Department, shared the latest strategies on 5G cyber security. He highlighted that ensuring 5G cyber security is a shared responsibility of key stakeholders including MNOs, vendors, application service providers, governments, and regulators. The NESAS/SCAS defined by GSMA provides appropriate standards for the communications industry, ones that are global, authoritative, efficient, unified, open, and constantly evolving. Huawei is the first 5G and LTE vendor to pass the NESAS assessment. Huawei learns from industry best practices to design top-level security architecture and provides improved security capabilities to enhance cyber resilience. Specifically, in-depth defense prevents border intrusion and lateral movement attacks; zero-trust@5G implements continuous evaluation and dynamic authorization; while adaptive security works on continuous detection and proactive issue resolution management. Huawei believes that ensuring 5G cyber security requires stakeholders to share responsibilities, supports global unified certification standards for 5G security, constantly innovates to improve security capabilities, and enhances cyber resilience for mobile communication networks.
Zhu Xiaodong, expert of Huawei Security Product Domain, discussed how cloud-edge synergy enables cyber security to function as part of the IT infrastructure. Cloud and security will become more integrated in the future. Today, offline security delivery faces many challenges, such as poor threat defense, shortage of security operation professionals, and expensive product security add-ons. With the Huawei QIANKUN security cloud service, automated cloud-based analysis speeds up blocking response and improves service efficiency, ensuring threat sources are blocked within minutes. Cloud-based security experts provide continuous support for comprehensive and accurate threat detection. In addition, Huawei works with service partners to respond to emergencies anytime and anywhere as well as resolving security events. Looking ahead, we expect to see cyber security architecture that features cloud-edge synergy scale up the availability of cyber security capabilities. These will become basic utilities, like water and electricity, enabling cyber security to truly function as IT infrastructure.
