Business Continuity Management

With today's highly globalized division of labor, Huawei must rely on a wide variety of third parties (including outside companies and agencies) for procurement, manufacturing, logistics, and global technical services. Therefore, the discontinuity of third-party business could directly or indirectly compromise Huawei's operations and business performance.

Through years of ongoing investment, Huawei has established a Business Continuity Management (BCM) system for procurement, manufacturing, logistics, global technical services, and other domains. This system covers end-to-end processes, from suppliers to Huawei, and on to our customers. As part of this system, we have developed and established measures to manage risks that arise from our day-to-day work. Specifically, we have built up management organizations, processes, and IT platforms, prepared business continuity plans and emergency response plans, and organized BCM training and drills for employees.

Over the past decade, Huawei has successfully addressed many major political, economic, and trade upheavals; cyber-attacks (e.g., ransomware attacks); and natural disasters like the tsunami in Japan, the floods in Thailand, and the earthquake in Nepal. Throughout all of these challenging situations, Huawei has managed to ensure supply continuity and the timely delivery of products and services. This demonstrates the feasibility of Huawei's supply continuity management system.

Huawei is a global company that works in the network infrastructure, IT infrastructure, cloud services, and smart device domains. We have worked extensively with over 10,000 suppliers and established sound, long-term partnerships with them. Looking to the future, we have confidence that our partners can help us build an ecosystem for shared success and development as well as a secure, reliable, competitive, and healthy industry chain.
