I have just finished speaking at the Seoul cyber security
conference, perfectly and warmly hosted by the Republic of Korea Government.
About 100 countries, plenty of Ministerial support as usual. Sadly the
conversation does not appear to have moved on in many ways relating to “international
laws, standards, behaviours”. In fact it is what most Ministers asked for, yet
I assume it is their job... Correct me if I am wrong but I have not seen since
the first conference in London some three years ago any G8, G20, UN or other
Government put this to the top of the list and say we are going to make this
happen. Perhaps with all of the Snowden revelations and the fact that some
enterprises and some Governments no longer trust American Tech titans we might
see more progress on this.
For our part at Huawei we are passionate about bringing the
world together to make progress on determining what does good end-to-end cyber
security look like and implementing globally accepted standards to help buyers
have more trust in what technology they are buying. To this end at the Seoul
conference I launched a new white paper that documents how Huawei builds-in
cyber security requirements into its end-to-end processes - we would love your
views on how we can improve on what we do.
