Huawei opened its largest global cybersecurity and privacy protection transparency centre in Dongguan, China on Wednesday.

Along with the opening of the new centre, Huawei also released its product cybersecurity baseline, said a press release.

The centre is designed to demonstrate solutions and share experience, facilitate communication and joint innovation, and support security testing and verification.

"Cybersecurity is more important than ever," said Ken Hu, Huawei's Rotating Chairman, at the opening of the Dongguan centre.

For a unified approach to cybersecurity in the telecoms industry, organisations like GSMA and 3GPP have also been working with industry stakeholders to promote NESAS security assurance specifications and independent certifications.

Mats Granryd, Director General of GSMA said, “Initiatives such as the GSMA 5G Cybersecurity Knowledge Base, designed to help stakeholders understand and mitigate network risks.”

At the event, Huawei also released its Product Cyber Security Baseline, which will help together with Huawei's other governance mechanisms, helps ensure the quality, security, and trustworthiness of the company's products.

"This is the first time we've shared our security baseline framework with the entire industry, not just core suppliers," said Sean Yang, Director of Huawei's Global Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Office, according to the media release.
