Openness and Transparency
Today, cyber security and privacy protection are a common challenge. All stakeholders, including governments, industry and standards organizations, enterprises, and technology suppliers have a shared responsibility to confront this challenge. We call on all stakeholders to establish a set of globally recognized security standards and conformance mechanisms.
Standards as well as standards-based certifications and assessments allow cyber security risks to be assessed in a rational and objective manner and enhance trust in technologies. The mobile communications field widely recognizes the NESAS/SCAS security standards and assessment methods jointly promoted by GSMA and 3GPP as valuable security baselines. These will further improve the capabilities of mobile networks to protect against cyber security and privacy risks.
We are committed to protecting people's cyber security and personal privacy while they enjoy the benefits of technological advances. To this end, Huawei has maintained ongoing communication and cooperation with stakeholders in an open, transparent, and responsible manner. Together, we have worked to jointly address cyber security and privacy protection challenges through technological innovation, standards and certifications, and improved governance.
In 2020, we received recognition for many of our contributions to the global cyber security community:
STORY-Huawei Cyber Security Transparency Centers: Building Collective Capabilities and Sharing Value
Huawei has opened six Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Transparency Centers around the world (in the UK, Canada, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, and China). These centers serve as a platform for communication and cooperation with stakeholders, and have three main functions:
- Showcasing Huawei's end-to-end cyber security practices, from strategies and supply chain to R&D, products, and solutions
- Facilitating communication and cooperation between Huawei and its key stakeholders to further the development of security standards and verification mechanisms, and to drive technological innovation in cyber security across the industry
- Providing a product security testing and verification platform and related services to Huawei customers
We welcome all stakeholders to use the centers to strengthen communication and cooperation in security standards, testing and verification, and technological innovation. We look forward to continuing to improve capabilities and share value in order to confront the challenges of cyber security and privacy protection together.
