Press Release: Statement on Establishing a Global Cyber Security Assurance System

As a global leading telecom solutions provider, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (“Huawei”) is fully aware of the importance of cybersecurity and understands the concerns of various governments and customers about security. With the constant evolution and development of the telecom industry and information technology, security threats and challenges are increasing, which intensifies our concerns about cybersecurity. Huawei will, therefore, pay a great deal more attention to this issue and has long been dedicated to adopting feasible and effective measures to improve the security of its products and services, thus helping customers to reduce and avoid security risks and building trust and confidence in Huawei’s business. Huawei believes that the establishment of an open, transparent and visible security assurance framework will be conducive to the sound and sustainable development of industry chains and technological innovation; it will also facilitate smooth and secure communications among people.

In light of the foregoing, Huawei hereby undertakes that as a crucial company strategy, based on compliance with the applicable laws, regulations, standards of relevant countries and regions, and by reference to the industry best practice, it has established and will constantly optimize an end-to-end cybersecurity assurance system. Such a system will incorporate aspects from corporate policies, organizational structure, business processes, technology, and standard practice. Huawei has been actively tackling the challenges of cybersecurity through partnerships with governments, customers, and partners in an open and transparent manner. In addition, Huawei guarantees that its commitment to cybersecurity will never be outweighed by the consideration of commercial interests.

From an organizational perspective, the Global Cyber Security Committee (GCSC), as the top-level cybersecurity management body of Huawei, is responsible for ratifying the strategy of cybersecurity assurance. The Global Cyber Security Officer (GCSO) is a significantly important member of GCSC, in charge of developing this strategy and managing and supervising its implementation. The system will be adopted globally by all departments within Huawei to ensure consistency of implementation. The GCSO shall also endeavor to facilitate effective communication between Huawei and all stakeholders, including governments, customers, partners, and employees. The GCSO reports directly to the CEO of Huawei.
