Huawei has been named as a founding member of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE).
Bringing together a range of private companies, inter-governmental organisations and Governments for the first time to work towards ensuring a “free, open and secure cyber space”, the GFCE aims to become a pragmatic, action-oriented and flexible forum to meet the challenges of cyber-integrity.
“Huawei supports the GFCE’s mission of collaboration to ensure that as societies become increasingly digitised and interconnected, we work together to find ways to minimise the disruptive threat of cyber criminality,” said John Suffolk, Huawei’s group chief security officer said.
“We have long advocated for global standards in the area of cyber security. GFCE is, we believe, a key step in the right direction towards that ultimate goal.”
The Forum will be consistent with international laws, the Charter of the United Nations and other internationally-recognised conventions. Core to the Forum’s work will be the sharing of experience, expertise and best practice, initially in four key areas: cyber security, cyber crime, data protection and e-governance.
