The Cyber Trust Mark is awarded to organisations who are independently assessed on 22 domains which consist of cyber governance and oversight, cyber education, information asset protection, secure access and environment and cybersecurity resilience.
As part of this programme, Huawei works with the CSA to help organisations in Singapore bolster their cybersecurity and boost awareness, as well as encouraging them to also attain CSA’s Cyber Essentials Mark.
As the cloud and cyber threat landscape becomes even more disruptive worldwide, companies like Huawei demonstrate that these issues should be prioritised by businesses.
Huawei’s resilient end-to-end global cybersecurity protections
Security is an integral part of Huawei's digital platform and provides resilient end-to-end network security capabilities that aim to ensure the security of customer data and applications.
The organisation has built and implemented its own end-to-end global cybersecurity and privacy protection assurance system in all domains. The system covers policies, processes, tools, technologies and standards.
Huawei has established end-to-end cybersecurity and privacy protection verification systems and regularly conducts cybersecurity and privacy protection measurements, inspections and internal audits - which are completed by organisations independent of the company’s business departments for verification purposes.
These tests, certifications and external audits ultimately aim to improve Huawei’s cybersecurity and privacy protection management.
The company has also organised training and exams concerning cybersecurity and privacy protection for all of its employees and provides special training for managers and high-risk employees. It believes in the importance of establishing an accountability mechanism and taking disciplinary action against violators.
Indeed, this is of extreme importance given the rapidly growing skills gap within the cybersecurity sector. Cyber Magazine has previously reported that the majority of businesses are not completing cyber risk assessments regularly enough, with nearly half doing these once a year.
Failure to regularly assess cyber risks could expose organisations to more potential attacks, elevating the likelihood of breaches remaining unnoticed for extended periods.
Moving forward: Keeping businesses safe
With cyber crime having become more sophisticated throughout 2023, it is important that businesses consider possible risks and mitigate accordingly.
In order to mitigate all cybersecurity issues, Huawei appointed a Global Cybersecurity and Privacy Officer (GSPO), who is responsible for leading their teams to develop cybersecurity and privacy protection strategies.
The Officer also ensures that strategies are well implemented in all departments, regions and processes, as well as driving communication with stakeholders such as governments, customers, consumers, suppliers, partners and employees.
Speaking on the company’s cyber trust mark, Foo Fang Yong, CEO of Huawei International, says: “Cybersecurity is Huawei's top priority and certification is the most effective way to demonstrate our commitment and credibility in cybersecurity, hence building trust with our stakeholders.
“Huawei advocates and promotes the establishment of cybersecurity standards that are globally recognised and agreed upon, including supporting local certification led by local regulators.”
He continues: “It is our collective responsibility to strengthen the cyber readiness of the entire ecosystem and promote the cyber safety for Singapore’s critical information infrastructure, which is why we embark on this Cyber Trust mark certification developed by CSA and aligning ourselves with the nation’s highest standard.”
