BRUSSELS - Huawei, a leading Chinese global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, on Wednesday called for international cooperation to meet cyber security challenges.

"The global supply chain of the ICT sector requires international cooperation to work on global solutions to cyber security challenges," said David Francis, cyber security officer with Huawei UK.

The remarks were made at an event in Brussels where Huawei was presenting its second white paper on cyber security "Cyber Security Perspectives: Making cyber security a part of a company's DNA."

In the ICT sector featuring the global supply chain, "there is no such a thing as an American product, an European product or a Chinese product," Francis said at the event.

"No company can fight cyber security threats on their own. There has to be an an alignment," he added.

Threats from cyber crime are at an all-time high, the white paper pointed out, in terms of sophistication and volume - and continue to trend upwards.

"At Huawei, we are determined to play our part in an open and active dialogue with a view to jointly creating more secure network infrastructure," Francis said.

Huawei detailed its position on cyber security in the 45-page white paper, after publishing a first one last year which stressed the company's commitment to working with public and private sector stakeholders to address the challenge.

The latest paper provides much more detail on its end-to-end approach to the design, building and deployment of technology involving cyber security considerations.

The company's cyber security strategy and governance structure are set out, as are its day-to-day processes, standards, staff management, R&D concerns, supply chain management system and security verification, manufacturing, delivery and traceability procedures.
