Huawei supports Australian Cyber Security Centre development

Claims industry must be part of the solution to cyber threats

Huawei Australia, has welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement of an Australian Cyber Security Centre.

Huawei chairman, Rear Admiral John Lord, claimed that industry must be part of the solution to cyber threats, and that no single Government, agency, or company has all the answers.

During a speech to the National Press Club in Canberra, Lord called for the creation of a national cyber security evaluation centre, to test the security credentials of technologies being implemented into critical infrastructure projects.

He said the centre provides a collaborative approach to cyber security between industry and Government, resulting in the best network technologies with robust security assurance for Government, operators, and end-users alike.

“Huawei welcomes the Government’s aspiration to become a global leader in this area. Collaboration is the key to success, and major global technology companies like Huawei must be part of the solution to cyber threats,” he said.

He added that the company is encouraged by the Government’s vision to bolster Australia’s cyber security defences and stands ready to work with industry and Government to make the vision a reality.

Globally, Huawei is working in partnership with Governments and security agencies in the cyber security space.

Huawei is deploying a national fibre broadband network with BT in the UK, where it is working with the Government and security agencies to develop security assurance processes in a Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (CSEC).

Dear ASIO what have you done about that corrupt Ericsson retard who runs the Intercept Management System (phone tapping system)? I guess he's rubbing your back too.
