Calls for an unified common standards with verifiable facts needs to be created and imposed in case of cyber security was made by Chinese tech giant Huawei.
“Trust needs to be based on facts, facts must be verifiable and verification must be based on common standards. We believe that this is an effective model to build trust for the digital era,” said Ken Hu, deputy chairman at Huawei Cyber Security Transparency Centre opening ceremony in Brussels Tuesday.
Providing a platform for facilitating communication and identification of solutions to balance out security and development in the digital era is the aim of the center for all of the stakeholders of the digital world which include governments, technical experts, industry associations and standards organizations.
“The fact is that both the public and private sectors lack a basic common understanding of this issue. As a result, different stakeholders have different expectations, and there is no alignment of responsibilities,” Hu commented at the program.
“As a whole, the industry lacks a unified set of technical standards for security, as well as systems for verification. This is complicated by the globalization of the value chain,” he said.
Compared to all of the earlier mobile network technologies, the 5G technology is believed to be is more secure in terms of cyber security standards according to analysts and experts. Huawei said at the news conference that it has made significant contributions to development of those security standards for the new age 5G technology.
Additionally, establishment of security standards for 5G technology are widely involved and are most often formulated in a collaborative manner within the industry which includes more than 50 companies and includes names like Huawei, Nokia as well as Samsung. The efforts also are helped by participation of more than 100 technical experts.
The company said that a technology framework for comprehensive privacy from three layers has been framed by it for artificial intelligence because the proliferation of AI brings with it both challenges and opportunities for the world and the users. The three layer, according to Huawei include control, unlinkability and security.
Huawei has been working on cybersecurity and privacy protection for many years with similar institutes founded in Britain, Bonn, Dubai, Toronto and Shenzhen.
This was the primary theme that Huawei, which has in recent times been at the receiving end of a number of allegations related ot threat to security from use of its equipment by the United States, brought up during the opening of the company’s Cyber Security Transparency Centre today in Brussels. Apart from representation from regulators, telecom carriers and enterprises, there were also representatives from the European Union, the GSMA, and the World Economic Forum.
The company stressed on the importance of creation of standards for cybersecurity because unprecedented challenges to ICT infrastructure are posed by new and fast developments in All Cloud, intelligence, and software-defined everything. The company said that safeguarding cyber security is considered to be a responsibility held by all industry players and society as a whole.
